A Massachusetts High School’s ‘American Pride’ Dance Changed For Excluding Other Nationalities
Lexington, Massachusetts is a town that played a crucial role in the American Revolutionary War. The theme for the junior/senior dance at Lexington High School has been changed from 'American Pride' to 'National Pride'. The change is sparking debate in the community.
Carol Pilarksi, assistant superintendent for Lexington Public Schools, told WHDH that officials wanted the dance to be more inclusive so students could represent their different nationalities.
Student Ethan Embry told WHDH he felt the decision was 'ridiculous' and based on 'hypersensitivity to being politically correct.'
