Freedom of Speech

A Kentucky teacher burned two American flags to demonstrate free speech to his seventh grade classes. He will not face criminal charges, but his school board may have some sort of disciplinary action.

I do not support flag-burning prohibitions, particularly in the form of constitutional amendments. Still, I find this teacher's actions idiotic and grotesquely offensive.

I wouldn't want him teaching my kid, and I would raise hell if one of my kid's teachers were to try a stunt like this, particularly in front of junior-high kids, who are a handful already.

What do you think?
