Teacher fired after barring flag from classroom
A teacher at Kolbe-Cathedral High School in Bridgeport, Connecticut, was fired as a result of his refusal to follow the policy of the Catholic Church requiring the display of a US flag in classrooms.
"The Diocese of Bridgeport has long believed that the American flag is an important fixture in its Catholic school classrooms," according to a Diocesan statement ont he issue.
"Kobasa said Friday that his careerlong personal policy has been not to display the flag of any nation in his classroom."
Kobasa's policy conflicted with the Church's policy. The Church wins.
