Video Shows Students Waving Confederate Flag

(Holland, OH)    An investigation is underway into an apparently racial incident at Springfield High School. 

School officials say several students were seen on social media this week, waving a Confederate flag and using racial slurs on school grounds.  The students are reportedly members of a Christian youth group that was staging a country music party for local kids.  

District officials say students involved in the rally will be punished and education efforts are planned to make students more culturally sensitive.

But a youth leader for Young Life and parents say a meeting that night at the high school had a country theme and some of the students used the Confederate flag as a prop to match their attire and may not understand what that flag has come to represent.
