Tennessee School Moves to Ban All Flags From Campus…Sort of


The uproar, over the ban of all flags on school property in Dickson County School District, must have become a little too loud for the the District over the weekend.  An email was sent to FOX13 to “set the record straight” as information about this flag ban created an outcry from students and parents alike.

The School District in Tennessee decided after a tumultuous summer, embroiled in controversy regarding the confederate flag, that banning all banners and flags on school property was prudent.

This move did not set well with students and parents as patriot freedom has been muffled.  As reported by MyFoxMemphis:

One student said, “I just think that's a right…it's freedom of expression and I don't think you should be able to take that away from us.”

“School leaders said there is a right and wrong way to show American pride:

“It's not an unpatriotic act by any means because we have a number of ways in which students do learn how to be patriotic and express American pride.”

The backlash the District experienced forced them to clarify what they really meant.   Now they state that not all flags are banned at school, but that they are “only banning flags from flying on the back of pick-up trucks on school property.”
