A teenager in Virginia decided to be homeschooled after being told to remove two large American flags from his truck if he wanted to park in the school lot.

Hartless believes that since his family fought for America, he should be able to represent the flag they fought for. He also questions why it is considered distracting when other students can see the flag on the school's flagpole.
Support from Stepmother
A stepmother named Christina Kingery expressed her support for her son's decision to fly the American flag. She stated that if the school is willing to change their policy and allow students to display the flag, she might consider sending her son back to Staunton River. However, if the school does not make any changes, she will continue to support her son's right to fly the flag.

The student believes that every student should have the right to fly a flag as long as it is not harmful or disrespectful to the country. The school explained their decision by stating that their parking contract prohibits the display of large flags or banners on vehicles due to their distracting nature.
