Student Banned From Displaying Confederate Flag

KSAL StaffJanuary 29, 2016

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP)  – A high school student who was displaying a Confederate flag on the vehicle he drove to school has been told he can no longer show the flag on school property.

District spokeswoman Julie Boyle said in an email that Free State High School decided not to allow the student to bring the flag to school because it was disrupting the learning environment.

Boyle said that the student was not disciplined further.

The district doesn’t have a policy regarding the Confederate flag, but that the high school’s student handbook has a policy that states its commitment to providing a discrimination-free learning experience.

Lawrence Superintendent Rick Doll says the school’s administration considered the student’s free speech rights before making the decision.
