Is it Neutrality or Backlash? Schools Across the Country Are Banning Pride and BLM Flags

Utah’s Davis School District sent an email to teachers and administrators earlier this month claiming that banners in support of the Black and LGBTQ+ communities are banned under its official policies, as they view the flags as “politically charged”. The spokesperson claimed that Davis is merely “following state law” by disallowing Pride and BLM flags on its school campuses, but Utah’s rules on the subject are reportedly ambiguous. That uncertainty has led some schools to continue to flying LGBTQ+ banners even as others are cracking down. One school under Davis’ purview even interpreted the district-wide guidelines as applying to stickers and pins displaying Pride flags or pronouns. This follows a wave of anti-LGBTQ policies across the country.
