THE AMERICAN FLAG
May 5th, in some quarters, is known as Cinco de Mayo - a Mexican holiday. These kids were told that the display of the American flag on that day was "incendiary" and that the day was "sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it's supposed to be their holiday."
The teens' parents were understandibly upset and met with the district school officials. Fortunately those officials possessed common sense and overrode the high school officials.
