Jan 26, 2005 — Earlier this month, students at Potsdam High School staged an act of civil disobedience. They were protesting the new principal's ban on bandanas and headbands. She said they could be used as gang related symbols. Commentator Andrew Vitek is a student at the school and participated in the demonstration. He says now, more than ever, you have to stand up for what you believe in.
Principal Holly Ledger declined to give her version of the bandanna policy. She said it's not an issue. Potsdam High School has announced Ledger has taken an unexpected leave of absence for personnel reasons.
