This is what happens when you let the inmates run the assylum. I can understand flags being prohibited if their was some form of ethnic tension being caused. However, the American flag should NEVER be banned from an AMERICAN school. What a banana republic. WTF is going on in this country? :enranged: High School Bans American Flag Tuesday, Sep 11, 2007 - 11:56 PM Updated: 07:03 AM SAMPSON COUNTY, N.C. â€“ On the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, students at one high school were not allowed to wear clothes with an American Flag. Under a new school rule, students at Hobbton High School are not allowed to wear items with flags, from any country, including the United States. The new rule stems from a controversy over students wearing shirts bearing flags of other countries. Gayle Langston said her daughter, Jessica, was told to remove her stars and stripes t-shirt. â€śToday she wanted to wear her shirt, and I had to tell her no,â€ť said Langston. â€śShe didn't like it at all because I knew it would get her in trouble. Of all days, 9/11, she could not wear her American Flag shirt.â€ť The superintendent of schools in Sampson County calls the situation unfortunate, but says educators didnâ€™t want to be forced to pick and choose which flags should be permissible.
