At the Dec. 20 action meeting, the Elizabethtown Area School Board unanimously endorsed accepting a donation of pocket U.S. Constitutions after several months of discussions surrounding donated educational materials to the district. The Constitutions donated by Mount Joy Township resident Tom Miller.
Miller, who said he’s lived in the school district for 18 years and is a military veteran, attempted to make donations of several books along with the pocket Constitutions and “Free to Speak” pamphlets at the board’s Nov. 8 workshop meeting. The books included “Identity: The Distinctiveness of You” by Steve Prokopchak, “Zombie Science” by Jonathan Wells and “The College Scam” by Charlie Kirk.
The remaining books are still being considered pending a policy update.
