No Rebel Rags in South Carolina Schools

The decision to suspend a South Carolina high school sophomore because of her wearing a Confederate Rebel Flag shirt has been held up by a federal appellate court.

The student was initially suspended twice in 2006 for the questionable clothing. Both times she was forced to turn her shirt inside-out or change into school-approved threads. Although her case has received several appeals, ultimately on Monday the 4th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that her First Amendment rights came second to “promoting” her school’s “educational mission”.
