School District Bans ‘Political’ Flags
There is a battle over the education system in America right now, and the intercessors have to take their place on the battlefield.
From Fox News. A Wisconsin school board voted in favor of a policy banning gay pride flags and Black Lives Matter (BLM) flags from classrooms due to what school leaders say is political messaging.
“Teachers and administration will not have political flags or religious messaging in their classroom or on their person,” Superintendent Stephen Plum said ahead of the vote…
The Kettle Moraine School Board voted last Tuesday in favor of keeping a code of conduct in place that the school’s superintendent had interpreted as banning teachers from displaying political and religious messages in classrooms. The political messages include ones such as gay pride flags, BLM flags and “We Back the Badge” signs. Only one school board member voted against the ban, saying he made the decision after speaking with concerned students and staff.
The policy also includes banning teachers from including their preferred pronouns in email signatures.
Plum told the school board that the district’s interpretation of the policy — which prohibits staffers from using their positions to promote partisan politics, religious views and propaganda for personal, monetary or nonmonetary gain — changed following a legal analysis.
The vote was held in a packed room last week as students and community members sounded off on the measure….
The ACLU of Wisconsin has since issued statements slamming the vote and is currently investigating the policy….
