A federal court in southern California has ruled that high schools cannot prevent high schoolers from kneeling during the national anthem.

This decision strikes down a rule of the San Pasqual Valley Unified School District that prohibited “kneeling, sitting or similar forms of political protest” at athletic events and required students and coaches to “stand and remove hats/helmets … during the playing or singing of the National Anthem.” The issue arose after a student at an Imperial County high school kneeled during the anthem and was bullied and harassed by a rival team. This led to the district imposing the standing rule. (source) 6:00 p.m. ET December 30, 2017
