Missouri student loses driving rights for flying Confederate flag
REPUBLIC, Mo. | A southwest Missouri student lost his driving privileges at school for flying a Confederate flag on his truck.
The Republic school district twice suspended Riley Collier's driving privileges because of concern that the flag distracted some students and was offensive to others.
Collier says he does not understand why he can't fly the flag while driving to and from Republic High School. He does not consider the flag racist. He says it's about history and the way of life where he grew up.
Republic School District Superintendent Vern Minor says he can't talk about the situation because it involves a student.
