Flag flap in Denver

A Colorado teacher was suspended this week for displaying foreign flags in a geography class. Colorado law says you can't display another country's flag on a public building, but there's an exception for transitory displays for educational purposes. Geography teachers can't display flags? A day later, the district reversed itself. Something tells me the administration realized (after adverse publicity) that the middle-school principal was overreacting.
