A high school in Creston, Iowa, said Wednesday it has disciplined students who appeared in a viral photo that showed them wearing white hoods similar to Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and waving a Confederate flag next to a burning cross, according to reports.

Among the five students seen in the photo, at least one of them appeared to be armed with a rifle. Principal Bill Messerole of Creston Community High School confirmed all the students in the photo were disciplined after the school learned about the photo early Wednesday morning.

International Business Times could not find the post where the students would have shared the photo. However, media outlets and social media users have shared the screenshot of the image.


Messerole said the photo was not taken on school grounds. The names of the students in the photo have not been released yet and the school also refused to comment on what punishment the students received, citing the school’s confidentiality policy, according to San Francisco Chronicle.
None. A public school should have no right to restrict a person's 1st Amendment rights , or punish them for exercising those rights , when they are not attending school or a school sponsored function.
With the advent of social media, I'm afraid that has changed. Once you make yourself public, you are culpable. IMO

It isn't a crime to express those views or dress that way out of school so the school should have no right to restrict an individual's first amendment rights. They are not the speech police . The students should sue the district.

They posted their pictures on social media. How stupid is that? It became public and the school had to respond.

Their actions couldn't possibly be seen as disruptive to the school's learning environment, right?
Their actions couldn't possibly be seen as a threat to the few black students at the school, right? After all, wearing KKK outfits, carrying a confederate flag, burning a cross and carrying a rifle is just good, clean fun.

It is a very bad practice to allow schools to tell parents how to raise their children or what their children are allowed to do outside school. This is how the state could indoctrinate children.
