In a rural Rutland county school district, flying the BLM and pride flags at local schools is getting community pushback.
“Art Peterson, a local resident seeking office as a state representative in the Rutland-2 district, disagreed with the decision, and helped create and circulate a petition against flying political flags at the schools. “A group of us felt that something that important would require more than a unilateral decision by the school board,” he told True North. “We felt that the public needed to weigh in on it, and that wasn’t done. So we started the petition, circulated it, and got an awful lot of signatures.” The petition urges the school board to present the issue to voters by Australian Ballot and to call a special meeting to address questions from the community."
