Article. Sure, they later "capitulated," but only after being contacted by a major news agency. I have two grave concerns over this issue: 1. Just how out of touch with reality are educators these days, anyway? 2. Since when did the complaints of some students supercede a school administration's requiremen to follow Constitutional law, then State, county, and municipal law. No principal has the right to deny a child's properly-exercised Constitutional rights, and displaying our American flag is utterly proper. Having seen hundreds of schools and never having seen one lacking an American flag, I can't help but wonder if this school has struck our nation's flag from it's grounds!
