Tennessee House Favors New Flag Rule for Public Schools

The Tennessee House of Representatives voted in favor of a bill that would only allow certain flags to be displayed in classrooms and on school properties in the state.

On Monday, the House passed HB 1605 after two amendments to the language were approved by a vote of 70-24, with one lawmaker not voting. It prohibits all Local Education Agencies and public charter schools from displaying flags other than the United States, Tennessee state, city, government, official college, university, military, or a flag representing an Indian tribe.

Flags or symbols supporting political movements or sexual orientation, however, would not be allowed in classrooms or on school properties.

The Senate’s version of the bill would be more restrictive about who could sue over a flag, limiting it to that specific school’s students, parents, or guardians of those students or employees at a school.
