A complaint from a parent has prompted Dunedin High School to stop promoting a student volunteer opportunity tied to President Barack Obama, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Dunedin High principal Reuben Hepburn mentioned last month during daily announcements a volunteer opportunity for students to help the group Organizing for America in support of Obama, the Times reports. The Democratic group had contacted the school seeking volunteers, a Pinellas School District spokesperson told the Times.
A parent complained, leading school officials to deem that it was not appropriate for school officials to promote one organization that supports a specific candidate, according to the Times' story.
What do you think? Was the school district right to stop the promotion of this volunteer opportunity? Did the parent's complaint have merit? Post a comment below.
