Follow-Up: The Flag Is Back At Hobbton High School!

Well, that didn’t take long

“A school that had ordered students not to wear representations of the U.S. flag on their clothing has rescinded the ban, after word of the order that prevented a student from recognizing the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks became public.

Supt. L. Stewart Hobbs Jr. said officials in the district that includes Hobbton High School have rescinded the decision made earlier by a school principal.

“From this point on, all dress code changes will be made at the school board level,” the district confirmed.

The school in Sampson County, N.C., had come under national attention for the rule that banned students from wearing items of clothing that featured the American flag. On that basis, officials told a student not to wear a shirt bearing the American symbol on Tuesday, the sixth anniversary of the terror attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania that left about 3,000 innocent Americans dead.”

Isn’t it amazing what a little sunlight can do…
