Shame on your Splendora ISD! I just learned from a teacher Splendora ISD doesn't celebrate Martin Luther King Day simply because there are no Black students in their schools?? I always knew Splendora Texas has bad racial history, KKK, etc, but this is 2019! When will racism end there, and everywhere? Disgusting!
Many schools and businesses remain open for MLK day,
Yeah, but probably not for the same reasons as Splendor ISD.
I celebrated both Washington and Lincoln's birthday as a kid. (That's how I am) Teacher's used the holidays as a teaching moment. We had president's photos up on the bulletin boards during February. Nothing wrong with learning US history or respecting it. JMHO I seriously doubt Splendora even mentions ML King in their curriculum.
