The Superintendent Apologized For The Letter
As Takaria’s post gained traction online, eventually it was brought to the attention of Dr. Amy Carter, the Superintendent of the Meridian School Board, who wrote an apology letter. She made a point to note that she wants students to “view school as a safe space” and that “all students will participate and no students will be made to feel uncomfortable if they don’t bring refreshments.”
If it wasn’t for Takaria speaking up about the letter, some kids could’ve been shamed and made to feel lesser just because they couldn’t bring snacks. Not only is that horrible, but it also goes against the spirit of the season. Hopefully, this is a wake-up call for this teacher to change their philosophy and to one more accepting.
