Confederate Battle Purse Update
After doing a little research, it may well be that Burleson ISD is out of luck when it comes to banning displays of the Confederate battle flag by students on campus. I have found cases where the ACLU successfully challenged similar bans in West Virginia and Georgia (scroll down to the bottom of the page). As I said in my January 15th column in the Times-Review, my first instinct is to support the First Amendment, but what's going to happen when other students decide they want to wear a swastika or pentagram t-shirt? At what point does Burleson High School get transformed into a permanent political rally?
