Yes, The School System Really Is This Stupid. Be Glad Your Children Don’t Go There
As I’m sure you know by now, the Dougherty County Schools are in dire straights. With the huge cheating scandal, felony charges pending against several administrators and finally losing Title 1 money it’s understandable that some employees may be ready to send out distress calls, while other employees are still looking for ways to cover their ass!
This morning it seems one of the disheartened employees may have tried to send us all a message. The American Flag was run up on the flag pole UPSIDE DOWN! The US Flag Code says this is only to be done in times of dire distress as quoted below
No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
(b) The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
Terry Lewis of The Albany Herald grabbed a photo this morning of the US Flag being displayed in this manner at DCSS Offices. According to Terry, he went in and told an office of the matter. As Terry watched, employees went outside to change the Flag back to it’s proper configuration, however in the process Terry says they
lowered the flag and allowed it to drag across the ground as they turned it union side up
Seems DCSS really has no respect for the US FLAG.
Let’s keep the pressure up on this bunch of miscreants running our school system. The behavior of this body cannot be tolerated!
