Harrison School kid banned for sing the national anthem

Phillip and his father told the report what had happened and was hoping that she could help them find out why he was suspended for two days. It was in the morning and the school did the Pledge of Allegiance but during this Phillip started to sing the national anthem and was kicked into the hallway. Then he went to the principal's office and from there he got suspended for 2 days.

What do I think about it?

I think that this is just ridiculous for a kid to be suspended for two days for singing the national anthem. I mean this is America and that's our national anthem so why was this boy punished for this. Any student has the right to sing the national anthem if they would like cause we all have the right to freedom of speech. But all I wanna know is why?
