An incrementing number of schools across the country are ostracizing LGBTQ “pride” and Black Lives Matter flags, calling them too political and divisive. “The ostracizes have sparked concerns with many students and edifiers resigning, protesting or being suspended for voicing their opinion on the schools’ action,” the U.K.’s Independent reported Wednesday.
In August, an Oregon school district voted to proscribe LGBTQ and Black Lives Matter flags, as well as other “political” signs and articles of habiliments. “We don’t pay our edifiers to push their political views on our students. That’s not their place,” Brian Shannon, school board director and vice-chair of Newberg Public Schools, verbally expressed. “Their place is to edify the approved curriculum, and that’s all this policy does, is ascertain that’s transpiring in our schools.”

Administrators verbalize the symbols are too “politically charged,” reported the Salt Lake Tribune. “So, no flags fly in our schools except for the flag of the United States of America,” verbally expressed district spokesman Chris Williams, integrating that sports team flags are an exception to the rule.

Wallis, a preceptor from Neosho, Missouri, resigned after his school district responded to parents’ complaints of his exhibit of an LGBTQ “pride” flag in his classroom with injuctive authorizations to abstract it.
“I was then asked to sign a letter that verbally expressed I would not discuss human sexuality or my own personal sexuality in the classroom and could have no exhibits or coursework on those subjects,” the edifier tweeted in a thread that is no longer public. “This action was the reason for my resignation.”
Wallis, 22, filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights. “There is never a quandary when a heterosexual preceptor exhibits pictures of themselves and their spouses in a classroom but I have a flag and all hell breaks loose,” he complained, according to a report at the Springfield “News-Bellwether.”
Mary Emily O’Hara of LGBTQ activist group GLAAD, told Yahoo Life that flag ostracizes “are inimical messages that youth and adults homogeneous recognise as inimical discrimination, when the message should be that we include, forfend and value the most vulnerably susceptible among us.”
“Displaying an LGBTQ pride flag is an inclusive and innocuous way to show LGBTQ people they are welcome and safe,” O’Hara verbalized. But Newberg, Oregon’s school board director Shannon verbally expressed the flag ostracize policy’s main purport is to “get political symbols and divisive symbols out of our schools so we can fixate on the already arduous task of edifying our students in the core subjects.”
