Maryland High School Students Asked to Remove Clothing Bearing Controversial Symbol

At Brunswick High School in Maryland, students were instructed to remove clothing that featured the Confederate flag.

The students were celebrating Spirit Week, and Tuesday was USA Day. District spokesman Michael Doerrer said at least two students wore clothing with the Confederate symbol on Tuesday; another student brought a Confederate flag.

Doerrer said, “It could be that an administrator gets a feeling that it will create tension in the building or disrupt the school environment. It’s really about administrators knowing their students and what might cause an interruption.”

The FCPS dress code forbids students from wearing clothing or items advocating subjects that are gang-related, violent, illegal, libelous, or sexually explicit, which would not affect the use of the Confederate flag.

Brunswick High Principal Nancy Doll stated that displaying the Confederate flag “is viewed as interfering with school order …We talked with three students who cooperatively and respectfully changed their apparel. This is a comfortable, welcoming and safe place for all. This is a great week to show school spirit and a majority of our students participate with positive enthusiasm.”
