Carroll County school board to develop new policy on political symbols

April 20, 2022

The Carroll County school board voted last week to develop a new policy on the use of political symbols, specifically flags, inside public school buildings. The decision came in reaction to some parental concern about rainbow Pride flags that some teachers in Carroll County Public Schools have been displaying inside classrooms. Community members and schools Superintendent Steven Lockard said that the Pride flags are used to show support for LGBTQ students, but school board members said they believe the flags are political symbols and displaying them in schools goes against the recently revised political neutrality policy of the school system.
