    I feel the school’s intention was initially to prevent violence in the school environment, but instead, it’s decisions led to the opposite. Students, along with all Americans, have the right to fly whichever flag they want. Though the flag represents Southern heritage, it is also offensive to the heritage of others. In my opinion, the right to fly the flag comes with the responsibility to fly it appropriately and respectfully.

    I think it is great that these students are practicing there 1st amendment rights by protesting. I also do disagree with the school banning anything that has to do with confederate flag. Im not saying i agree with what the flag stands for. I just disagree with the school telling students that they cant wear a specific thing or have the flag on there car. If they believe in what the flag stands for then they should have to right to express that. Not everyone is going to agree with them. That’s what is so great about America, they don’t have to agree with them.
