High School Bans US Flag

SAMPSON COUNTY, N.C – A North Carolina High School that came under national attention over their rule that prohibited students from wearing items with the American flag, or any flag from other countries, has lifted the ban. Superintendent Dr. L. Stewart Hobbs, Jr said they have lifted the ban on flags and “from this point on, all dress code changes will be made at the school board level.”

Hobbs said the county has a dress code policy in place and says individual school dress codes are not allowed.

Conservative BLoggers Comments:
A US school bans its students from wearing any flag (including the US Flag) on clothing. This is beyond absurd. Note the Superintendents comments the next day when they rescinded the ban. It might as well have said "Our principle is an idiot and had no right to ban flags in the first place". The fact that this can happen (even for one day) in the US is further reason why we need to select and monitor our educators closely. The liberal bias is education is well known, but if we let the liberal agenda run its course unopposed in our schools, these are the types of things that can happen. Not as meaty as a first strike on Iran, but equally important in the long term.
