    Local School Suspends Student for Removing MEXICAN Flag

    NewsRadio 740 - KTRH


    Yesterday, a listener’s son was offended that his school, Klein Collins High School, displayed the Mexican flag prominently. His mother called to complain, and the school wouldn’t return her call. The student took the sign down.




    The school pitched a fit, reviewed the surveillance tapes, found the student, and suspended him for 3 days. AND he has to pay for the flag. In light of the SF story of students sent home for wearing the AMERICAN flag because it offended the Hispanic students, I thought you’d like to know about a story closer to home



    I think things are a little screwy no?

    Kid shouldn't have removed it, but the school shouldn't have put it up.

    If anything, it just shows that public schools are fascist, conformist, intolerant hellholes. I am beginning to pity any students who are being thrust into those revolving-door jokes instead of a proper private institute.

    Good old public schools; bored, disaffected, assholes for staff and intolerant idiots for students.

    I agree with this, absolutely.

    This situation is turning into a petty game of 'who has the power to out do you" - it's getting bizarre.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    It was school property and the kid didn't have the jurisdiction to take it down or not. That is why he got suspended.

    He had a legitimate complaint but went about it the wrong way.

    Also, surveillance tapes? Do a lot of American high schools have cameras now?

    Klein Independent School district denies flag flap rumors | abc13.com


    According to Klein ISD Communications Director Trazana Halstead, a Mexican flag was displayed inside the building, with permission, by a member of the school's Spanish club as part of a Cinco de Mayo observance. Halstead says another student upset by the display removed the flag and stuffed it in a trash can.
    As much as I absolutely disagreed with the school that sent home those kids with the American flag T-shirts, I absolutely agree with the school in this case. This kid had no business throwing someone else's property in the trash,

    A "cinco de mayo observanse" requires Corona and lime in order to be legit, since they were the one who pretty much invented this "holiday" for the US.
