Should School Allow Student to Fly Confederate Flag?


Last week, a student at Steinert High School in Hamilton, New Jersey, told a local TV news station that he was suspended after refusing to remove a large Confederate flag from his pickup truck at school.

It turns out there was no suspension — “No student at Steinert High School was suspended for displaying a Confederate flag, nor any display of anything for that matter,” Superintendent James Parla wrote in a letter to parents a few days later — but the story sparked lively debate across the country.

It brings to mind the observation that there’s a big difference between what’s right to do and what one has a right to do. What do you think? Take our poll and share a comment below.
