A Matter of Disruption, Not Dress.
Dowling-Sendor, Benjamin
American School Board Journal, v185 n8 p14-15,47 Aug 1998
Based on past incidents involving racial tension and student wearing apparel that displayed the Confederate flag, a South Carolina middle school prohibited clothing with the Confederate flag visible. Judge William B. Traxler Jr. ruled for the district. Advises administrators that they can regulate or ban expressive conduct by students only if their forecast of disruption rests on substantive facts. (MLF)
