The battle over the American flag has reached a middle school art class in California's Santa Rita School District where a student was told not to draw Old Glory because it was "offensive," but another student — in the same class – was praised for drawing a picture of President Obama.
Tracy Hathaway, of Salinas, CA, told FOX News Radio her 13-year-old daughter was ordered to stop drawing the American flag by an art teacher at Gavilan View Middle School.
"She had drawn the flag and was sketching the letters, 'God bless America,' when the teacher confronted her," Hathaway told FOX. "She said, 'You can't draw that – that's offensive.'"
Even more striking, another student in the same art class drew a picture of President Obama and was praised by the teacher.
