Updated: North Carolina School Bans Clothes With Flags, Including The US Flag

Update: The ban has been dropped.

From Sampson County, NC:

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.

Hello people, this is the US. I don't know what the controversy was, but I don't see a problem allowing students to wear shirts with flags from any country on them.If this was justified then under no circumstances do I see a reason why our flag should not be worn.
