Oregon school board votes to ban BLM, Pride signs from district buildings

An Oregon school district has voted to ban Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ, and other “political” signs, flags, and articles of clothing from their campuses. The board will later decide what counts as “political.” Superintendent Joe Morelock said he would have to meet with the district’s lawyers before enforcing the ban.

School board director and vice-chair Brian Shannon said the “main goal of this is to get political symbols and divisive symbols out of our schools so we can focus on the already difficult task of educating our students in the core subjects.” Shannon voted for the measure and added the language about apparel. 

Superintendent Joe Morelock plans to meet with the district’s lawyers┬áto determine the legality of the ban before he can enforce it.
