Meanwhile, school officials have banned students temporarily from wearing or displaying any symbol on campus that depicts heritage or race including the Confederate flag and Malcolm logos until a review committee can discuss the dress code, district spokeswoman Pam Bailey said. Before this, the Confederate flag and Malcolm logos were allowed as long as they did not include racial slurs. School Principal George McCrackin said South Carolina lawmakers can wrestle with the Confederate flag flying over the Statehouse, but he can't have political issues disrupting his school.
