Almost everything students - ALL STUDNTS - do is to show they are "better" than the other students. You think kids can appreciate Tommy Hilfiger shoes or purses? No. They buy a name because they can and other students cannot. (It is not until adulthood that one realizes the man is a freakin' genius when it comes to purses, shoes and accessories ) They drive certain cars to express their superiority, walk a certain way, talk a certain way, etc etc.Originally Posted by platinum786
Just because the students may not have been expressing their patriotism does not mean flags should be banned. They need to deal with the problem children because they are not going to go away with the flags. There will be other problems they can cause and not everything can be banned from school.
