Butler Elementary School of Belmont, Massachusetts has a tradition of sending students to see The Nutcracker. They have done it for decades.
But the PTA there purportedly received complaints from “some parents” that The Nutcracker had “questionable content”.
What would that questionable content be? Religion? A Christmas tree?
Some parents of the second graders, who didn’t want to appear on camera, told 7News that they’re also upset because PTA leaders secretly cancelled the field trip without telling anyone, but word spread.
PTA Co-President Barbara Bulfoni said, “In the past years there were parents complaints as ‘The Nutcracker’ has a religious content. I think we clarified with the parents.”
Some of the parents that pushed back against the decision are happy they won but are concerned it’ll come up again next year.
Figures it was Massachusetts, where there is a loon in every school.
