Feedback at 5:00: Petition to Display Confederate Flag At School

Students at a downstate school are asking for permission to display the Confederate flag at school.

The Hastings Area superintendent confirmed the student petition Wednesday.

Last week, she asked students at the high school not to display the flag on their clothes or cars during school hours.

She says she did so after people in the community expressed concern after seeing the flags in the school parking lot.

But the students behind the petition say they should be able to display the flag.

What do you think?

Should students be able to wear clothes and have the flag on their cars while at school?

Why or why not?
