Dear LVC Editor,

As Taxpayers in the Lehigh Valley, we should know how our Tax dollars are spent in our schools We have documentation of the Activism going on in the East Penn Schools that our taxes are being spent on. I don’t know about you, but all the dollars I pay to that district are meant for Academic Excellence not Activism. Teachers who are advisors to these Activist Clubs are not paid to be promoting Activism but to teach and prepare our children to succeed in their futures by imparting knowledge and accomplishments in the subjects they are paid to teach and to develop academic excellence on the part of our students. Did you know that Emmaus High School is OFF LIMITS

Letter Writer issues concerns about school walk out Policy.

Share

 

The East Penn School Board voted down a proposal to ‘limit student activism’ on April 23rd. This policy was proposed by Board Director Carol Allen. Ms. Allen shares concerns by parents and taxpayers and that’s that ‘district employees shall not engage in political activities during assigned work hours on property under jurisdiction of the board.’ (PSBA policy 321)

EP School Director, Carol Allen

What was lost on those against such a policy, is the purpose of the proposed policy is NOT to require students to ask permission or an attempt to stifle the student’s freedom of speech. The purpose is to ensure the procedures governing such actions are ‘viewpoint neutral’ and enforced in a consistent manner allowing for all voices

Dear Editor,

I have attended the East Penn School Board meetings and have some concerns that seem to have fallen on deaf ears. When Board member Carol Allen brought up the PAYS (Pennsylvania Youth Survey) for grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 at the September 25, 2017 meeting, I was quite concerned about that survey. I was able to acquire a copy of the over 200+ questions and was shocked to read some of them. As a parent, I know I would not want my children answering those invasive questions. Truly an invasion of privacy
