According to Education Action Group, a photo posted on Facebook recently of a male student standing on an American flag while a female student flips off the camera went viral.
But their classmates at Richland High School in Johnstown, Penn. have banded together to send a different message. Last week, droves of students returned to school with vehicles and clothing adorned in Old Glory, completing a lap around the campus before heading to their classes.
Superintendent Arnold Nadonley praised the parading students for their peaceful, patriotic message.
“I want to thank them for doing it with class and good demeanor," he said, "And I think that is representative of Richland School District.”
