ISSUE:

The Anne Arundel County Council unanimously passed last week a measure asking the county school district to adopt a policy to require Halloween celebrations in all schools.

County Councilman C. Edward Middlebrooks introduced the resolution Monday night after learning that some county schools would not have Halloween parties or parades.

"I think it's time someone starts standing up for things and saying this is ridiculous," said the Glen Burnie Republican and father of three elementary school students.

Anne Arundel County public schools leave it to the discretion of principals whether to celebrate the holiday.
