Burn the American Flag! Or Not… 

Last month a high school senior in Lebanon, NH, Bhvana Kaushik, noticed the absence of an American flag at half-staff at the school on September 11. She questioned the new principal and, unsatisfied with his “Gee, I didn’t notice” answer, gathered signatures to a petition and stirred the school to fix the snowplow-damaged flagpole and order a new flag. Ms. Kaushik, a dual citizen of India and the United States, called the flag’s absence “shameful” and chastised the school for failing to remember 9/11’s victims.

More recently, high school students in Arvada, Colorado took to the streets to protest a school board proposal to review schools’ curricula to ensure that they promote patriotism, respect for authority and free enterprise. The school board further seeks to prohibit materials that “encourage or condone civil disorder.”
