Smashing American icons: School officials ban PTA and Boy Scout literature

In another attack on the PTA and on wholesome traditional groups like the Boy Scouts, the Montgomery County school system has banned those organizations from sending activity fliers home in student's backpacks.

According to the Washington Post, "The decision comes less than a week after a federal appeals court ruled that the school system's policy for flier distribution was unconstitutional because it gave educators unlimited power to approve or reject materials."

School system Chief Operating Officer Larry Bowers assures people that the ban is only temporary.
