Teen Quits His School After Administrators Told Him To Remove The Flags

A Virginia teenager, Christopher Hartless, has opted for homeschooling following a clash with his high school regarding two large American flags on his truck. Despite school officials’ request to remove the flags due to potential distraction, Hartless asserts his First Amendment right and family’s connection to the country.

Hartless’s stepmother, Christina Kingery, strongly supports his stand, while the school emphasizes a parking policy against flags and banners to ensure safety. Kingery expressed, “I told my son if this is what he’s believing in, then we are both going to stand behind him all the way.”

 

The family’s switch to homeschooling was prompted by the desire to respect their convictions and avoid bus travel. Hartless stated, “My family fought for America, and I feel like I should be able to represent the flags that they fought for.”

While the American flag isn’t a violation itself, the school’s code restricts offensive symbols. Bedford County Public Schools emphasized their respect for the flag and national heritage, noting that they proudly display the American flag throughout the school and recite the Pledge of Allegiance every morning.

The situation underscores the delicate balance between personal rights, school policies, and safety, sparking discussions about freedom of expression within educational contexts.
