Some high school parents doing some pearl clutching about a painting

Recommended Posts


Some people are doing some serious pearl clutching about some art work at a high school.


A school district in eastern Iowa is defending its student's First Amendment rights. This comes after a few parents complained about certain artwork displayed in Linn Mar High School's hallways.

Officials at Linn Mar High School say they won't take the painting down for a couple reasons: constitutional rights and they want students to have a safe place to express themselves.

In some cases the portfolios are about sensitive issues. The painting that is stirring reactions from parents is meant to portray what it's like to be in a toxic relationship.

In a note next to the painting, the artist wrote that the artwork was a way to heal after being involved in an abusive relationship.

I'm glad the school officials are standing up for their students.

And I bet cash money some of these parents would have felt quite different when they were in high school.
