Buckman Elementary Bans Halloween Costumes

by

Controversy over Buckman Elementary’s ban on Halloween costumes:

“We’re pushing our traditions on an ever-changing population,” says Anderson. “I used to work at Kelly Elementary [at SE 92nd and Foster] and the school was 40 percent Russian. The Russian kids wouldn’t come to school that day because people were dressing up and celebrating Halloween. Halloween is, in many ways, personal to some people and to other people it’s very offensive.”
