STUART, Okla. (AP) – A small Oklahoma school district has adopted a policy in which students, athletes and spectators are “expected” to stand during the national anthem with no “gestures of demonstration or protest.”
The policy adopted by the school board says it isn’t intended to force anyone to violate their religious, political or social beliefs.
The policy says students who violate the policy would be disciplined on a case-by-case basis. Potential action against spectators is not addressed.
