Debate on Confederate Flag Moves to High School Sports

Confederate Flag Debates Move To High School Sports

In the three weeks since nine Black churchgoers were massacred in Charleston, South Carolina, a national debate has erupted over the place of the Confederate flag in public spaces. But the argument isn't confined to the South Carolina statehouse or the halls of Congress. Far from the spotlight, discussions about the appropriateness of Confederate symbolism are happening in another arena: High school athletics.

School districts and administrators have been dealing with the use of Confederate symbols in sports for years, and not just in the South. From New York and Massachusetts, to Texas and Florida, schools have disassociated themselves with nicknames like Rebels and logos that feature gray-clad Confederate soldiers and the battle flag itself.
