Tennessee School District BANS Flying The American Flag

When Tennessee's Dickson County School District appeared to establish a ban on all flags, including the U.S. Flag, at their schools in the wake of the Confederate Flag controversy, they sparked an outrage among some students who felt their patriotism was being attacked.

According to Fox News, Dickson County Director of Student Services Steve Sorrells explained: "While this (ban) was not necessarily an attack on the American flag, there were some other issues we're trying to address. It's not an unpatriotic act, by any means, because we have a number of ways in which students do learn how to be patriotic and express American pride."

But according to Fox News out of Memphis, on Sunday (Aug. 23), the school district sent out a clarifying email that the ban only applied to flags flying on the back of pickup trucks while on school property.

Do you think a school district has the right to ban flags on student personal vehicles?  We would love to hear your thoughts!
