Shasta High Restores Newspaper That Published Flag Burning

REDDING, Calif. (AP) - Officials at a Northern California high school are reversing their decision to shut down a school newspaper that published a picture of a student burning an American flag.

Shasta High School's principal had said the student-run Volcano
newspaper was done.

But the district's superintendent says he was won over by an appeal from the incoming editor-in-chief.

Junior Amanda Cope says she wants to run a serious, respectable
paper.

The outgoing editor-in-chief, Connor Kennedy, said he published the front page photo and an accompanying editorial after his class studied flag burning as part of their government class.
