Carroll County School Board Votes to Ban Certain Flags from Being Displayed
(News Source) —The Carroll County School Board has voted to ban certain flags from being displayed on school property -- including gay pride flags.
The board -- including the student representative -- voted four to one for the ban last night.
The board voted against flags that display political positions but students may still wear symbols -- such as the gay pride symbol -- on their clothing.
A parents' group had raised concerns over the donation of pride flags to be displayed in classrooms.
The @CCPSk12 ban on Pride flags is unacceptable and it's not who we are as a state. It sends a message to LGBTQ+ students and educators they are not welcome. Our work to build a more inclusive Maryland where everyone can live, learn, and thrive is more urgent than ever. pic.twitter.com/L345KmXxua— Wes Moore for Maryland Governor (@iamwesmoore) June 9, 2022
The Carroll County Board of Ed. has voted to ban display of the pride flag in public schools. They did this under the guise of banning all "political flags." And they did it during Pride Month. Shame on them for giving in to hate.— Byron Macfarlane (@ByronMacfarlane) June 9, 2022
