“A teacher stood watch outside the door to the theatre while the show was going on to ensure those not invited would not enter,” an eyewitness said, according to Libs of TikTok.
The event became known after a leaked email to The New Jersey Project, a parent’s rights advocacy organization, was published on the group’s blog website, the report continues.
The email came from P.U.L.S.E. advisor and Hunterdon Central faculty member Heather Baldwin who stated in the email that the event was “invite only,” according to Libs of TikTok.
Parents and other community members voiced their concerns about the sexualization of children at the Flemington Board meeting on Nov. 21, the report continues.
