Do you celebrate Mother's and Father's Day at school? These students no longer do.
A Nova Scotia school is causing controversy after deciding to stop celebrating these two holidays. Instead, the school is opting to recognize the International Day of Families, according to CTVNews.ca.


The site reports the school is aiming to celebrate diversity and inclusivity, while avoiding making children who are part of nontraditional families feel left out.
"Children can be isolated in a classroom if they've lost their mom or are in a family without a dad or in a family with two moms or two dads," said Ramona Jennex, an education minister.
