Banned Book Tees Banned in KY High School

According to Mad Woman In The Forest, "teachers at Montgomery High School in Mt. Sterling, KY have been banned from wearing Banned Books Week tee-shirts that feature a quote from To Kill A Mockingbird."
The reason? Because wearing them constituted what the school board described as "political activity." Well, obviously. But isn't pledging allegiance to the flag a "political activity"? And taking a holiday on Presidents Day and Memorial Day? And taking an active stance against "political activities"?
Oh, well. At least those played-out Che shirts are still kosher.
