High School Student Suspended For American Flag

In Kansas City, Missouri, at Kearney High School, classes  at were shortened for all students to participate in a school wide event to produce a video, but three students are not even sure if they appear in the video.

Dylan Eckstein, Taylor Snider and Jackson Specker decided to paint an American flag across their chests collectively to show their patriotism in the video. Eckstein, who is a member of Missouri’s Army National Guard, was actually suspended over it. The school administration has stated that it was not the American Flag that got him suspended, but the fact that he was questioning authority.
