Poll- Should schools cancel Mother’s Day?

The Stir:

Teachers at Albert McMahon Elementary school in British Colombia, Canada, made the difficult decision to cancel Mother's Day and Father's Day celebrations after they held a meeting to discuss their "core values." The teachers sent home a letter explaining that "in an effort to celebrate diversity, inclusitity and also nurture our students who are part of non-traditional families," they won't be making gifts with students and they encourage families to celebrate on their own at home.

Roy Glebe, a parent at the school, received a copy of the letter and shared it on Facebook, where it's sparked a huge debate.

Some people are livid that their child's school is messing with their treasured traditions.

But others spoke out in support of the change and applauded the school for their attempts to be more inclusive.
