A number of students at Woodruff High School decided to remember the September 11th terrorist attacks by flying American flags on their trucks in the school parking lot.
That move violated a school policy banning students from drawing an “unusual amount of attention to oneself.”
The four students came to school on 9/11 with large American flags mounted on posts in their truck beds. [Principal Aaron] Fulmer removed the flags from their trucks and returned them at the end of the school day.
Fulmer wanted them removed from the students’ vehicles. He was just enforcing a “long-standing district policy,” he says.
