KY teacher burns flag; no charges filed September 21, 2006

Posted by moverstreet in Exposing Bias, Politics/Public Policy.

In order to teach a lesson on free speech, social studies teacher Dan Holden burned a US flag. “On two occasions, teacher set fire to combustible material (flag), allowing material to burn … then left the classroom filled with students,” reads the investigation. The Stuart Middle School teacher will not face charges for burning the US flag, or exposing “captive audience” to untold stresses, conscious and unconscious.

Next week’s suggested Free Speech lesson plan: Instead of smoking the US flag, display the John 3:1-36 on the overhead. Leave the room, then return and discuss what the students feel. Then, ask them to go home and discuss their social studies experiment with their parents.
