Take Your Banner Elsewhere Part II: Update

Part I

Now, after a public outcry, the school has decided that the grand old flag can come back.

Parraz says the school got flooded with so many complaints from upset parents both inside and outside of Denair that he was called into to "handle the situation."

Parraz says the school decided on Friday to allow Cody to display his flag again, and now it will be shifting its focus to the students who complained.

"In no way did we want to take that right away from Cody," Parraz told Fox40 on Friday. "…We think we know who the instigators are that were trying to do that and we need to meet with their parents and those students to just kind of explain that this isn't what we want to have. We want to make sure that our kids can appreciate a safe environment and be able to have the American flag."

They're making the right decision, but it's telling that only a huge cry of outrage from the public made them see the light. Let's see if this state of affairs lasts beyond the next Stinko de Mayo celebration.
