SAMPSON COUNTY, N.C â€“ A North Carolina High School that came under national attention over their rule that prohibited students from wearing items with the American flag, or any flag from other countries, has lifted the ban.
Superintendent Dr. L. Stewart Hobbs, Jr said they have lifted the ban on flags and â€śfrom this point on, all dress code changes will be made at the school board level.â€ť
Hobbs said the county has a dress code policy in place and says individual school dress codes are not allowed.
He adds that principals cannot make a policy that exceeds the board policy, "The principal acted in good faith and said no flags."...
