PERCASIA, Pennsylvania (WPVI) — The Pennridge School Board in Bucks County is trying to clear the so-called misunderstandings surrounding two policies related to teacher advocacy and student expression.

On Monday evening, she held a policy committee meeting in Perkasie.

The first issue deals with the posting of external materials in the school district.

Board members say this is an update of a 2014 policy and does not prevent children from sharing projects at school on topics such as gay rights or religion.

The second policy would prohibit employees from sharing their personal views during working hours, but children are still encouraged to have open discussions.

“How do we provide an education that challenges children to think about these really important issues, but also challenges them to think about them in a fair, neutral and balanced way, starting from a curriculum that we have approved and know how to do looks. This does not prevent a teacher from having a conversation about something that is close to the heart of a child,” said Pennridge School District Superintendent Dr David Bolton at the meeting.

Lawyers are helping Pennridge’s board adjust policy language.

They will be put to the vote next month.
