ROCKY MOUNT, Va..(WDBJ7) - The Franklin County School Board voted 7-1 Monday on a dress code that continues to allow students to wear the Confederate flag.

Some members of the board thought a ban would go against free speech for students.

Board member Penny Blue cast the one vote for a ban on the flag as part of students' clothing.
