"More than 20 Virginia high school students were suspended Thursday for wearing clothes emblazoned with the Confederate flag.....Montgomery County schools spokeswoman Brenda Drake told The Washington Post that Confederate flags have been banned at the school since 2002, after a series of racially motivated fights, some of which were provoked by students wearing the symbols."

Case a few years ago lets the school ban just about anything if it might provoke an incident. Basically a heckler's veto - so a threat of an incident for kids wearing Martin Luther King tee shirts means a legit ban on such shirts. Ditto for Black Lives Matter shirts, etc.
