Is Valentine’s Day Politically Incorrect? Minnesota School Cancels Holiday To Be Inclusive


For children at Bruce Vento Elementary in Saint Paul, Minnesota, all those Valentine's Day cards and candies will have to wait until after school. Principal Scott Masini sent a letter to parents this week announcing that the school will not be taking part in the holiday any longer, in the interest of being more culturally inclusive.

“I have come to the difficult decision to discontinue the celebration of the dominant holidays until we can come to a better understanding of how the dominant view will suppress someone else’s view,” the principal wrote, according to local CBS affiliate WCCO.

On its website, Bruce Vento Elementary School proudly notes that 63 percent of its student population identify as Asian-American, 24 percent as African-American, 10 percent as Hispanic-American and 4 percent as Caucasian. In Masini's letter — which raises the idea of also nixing other culturally specific holidays, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas — the principal expressed a desire to be more welcoming and inclusive to all of the cultures represented in the school.
