The superintendent of an Alberta elementary school is standing by his teachers and staff after parents' angry reactions to a lesson about the oilsands.

But after a parent threatened to confront a teacher on school premises, administrators at Iron Ridge Intermediate Campus in Blackfalds, Alta., cancelled a Christmas school dance.

"I think it's very, very evident that the teacher was being very balanced and very fair … and really in the spirit of the curriculum, and what's expected of teachers across Alberta teaching a social studies lesson," Jayson Lovell, superintendent of the Wolf Creek School Division, told As It Happens host Carol Off.
