I ran into an interesting situation yesterday, and wanted to run it by you guys. As some of you know, I'm a part-time music teacher at a local Christian school (in addition to my fulltime IT job). This week was the first week of school. In the school office are portraits of the President, Vice President, Governor, and City Mayor. The portraits have been there for over 20 years, and are changed after every election to show the current persons in those seats. On the second day of school, a parent came into the office and demanded we remove the portrait of Barak Obama. This is a new parent to the school, who, in just a few days, has complained about everything from the location of the lunch facility to the cost of school supplies (he even complained about the $4 material fee I charge for students in my music class). Some teachers were saying we should remove the portraits, and I said absolutely not. We shouldn't be strong-armed into picking and choosing whose portraits go up based on whether a parent likes or dislikes who's in office. The principle, being a fair man, has chosen to give the matter thought, listen to input, and will make his decision next week. So, friends, what do you think? Is this just a parent being a whiner, or is there some sort of moral issue here?
