BROOKLYN — After an outcry from parents, decisions by a controversial principal have been reversed.
Sunset Park principal Eujin Jaela Kim reportedly banned the pledge, Santa and the observance of any holiday.
After weeks of outcry, the school board have overturned her decision.
The Thanksgiving celebration was called “the harvest festival” and Christmas and Hanukkah were called the “winter show” according to WNYW-TV.
Kim has been told by the department of education Santa is considered a secular figure and is welcome.
Displays of Christmas trees, menorahs, kinaras and star and crescents are allowed.
“Permitted symbols and decorations must be displayed simultaneously with other symbols and decorations that reflect different beliefs or customs, according to the Department of Education.”
