Lapoynor ISD removes Christian flag

Lapoynor ISD removes Christian flag

After receiving complaints, a school district has removed a religious symbol from their campus. 

On October 11, Lapoynor ISD received a letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation requesting that officials remove the Christian flag from school grounds.

The letter sparked a debate within the district, and many students and parents were open about wanting the flag to stay.
The district's superintendent told KLTV that the Christian flag has been removed and a Gonzalez flag from the Texas war for independence, which says "Come and Take It," temporarily flies in its place.

A group of students has been elected to decide which flag will permanently be installed.
