The Perils of Not Hiring a Lawyer To Go Over Your Policies

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Three small-town eighth-graders in Minnesota were suspended by their principal for not standing Thursday morning for the Pledge of Allegiance, violating a district policy that the principal now says may soon be reworded to protect free speech rights.


The school's handbook says all students are required to stand but are not required to recite the pledge. The same is true for all four schools in the district, a school official said.

Apparently, news of West Virginia State Board of Ed. v. Barnette hasn't fully penetrated into the wilds of Minnesota yet.
