Live Oak High School Students Sent Home For Wearing American Flag Tees on Cinco de Mayo
In Live Oak High School, California, five high school students were threatened by the vice-principal that they would be suspended for coming to class with the American Flag adorned on their T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo.
According to reports, Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, California had a strange day yesterday when the principal warned the students to remove their America flag bandannas and to turn the American Flag T-shirts inside out, after receiving complaints that t-shirts worn by them were provocative.
The principal allegedly warned them and told them that if they do not obey what he told them to do, and returned to their classes the same way, they would be suspended from the school. However, the students went home and took the day off.
