When one student at Pennsylvania's Plum Borough School District complained that another had worn a sweatshirt with the Confederate flag to school, the superintendent informed his family that the school could not forbid the other student from wearing the shirt to school unless it was disruptive. But when three students showed up with clothing with the Confederate flag, officials said that was disruptive, ordered them to change and sent home the two who refused.
