According to a new report from Breitbart “an increasing number of schools across the country are banning LGBTQ “pride” and Black Lives Matter flags, calling them too political and divisive.”
The U.K.’s Independent reported Wednesday “the bans have sparked concerns with many students and teachers resigning, protesting or being suspended for voicing their opinion on the schools’ action.”
In August, a school district in Oregon voted to ban LGBTQ and BLM flags as well as symbols on clothing.
Brian Shannon, school board director and vice-chair of Newberg Public Schools, said “We don’t pay our teachers to push their political views on our students. That’s not their place. Their place is to teach the approved curriculum, and that’s all this policy does, is ensure that’s happening in our schools.”
