Jeff Lawrence: Let drone fly at Green Hope

Regarding the Nov. 7 sports article “ Green Hope drone grounded”: Leave it to the government to squash innovation. And shame on the Wake County Public School System and Green Hope High School bureaucrats for folding like a cheap chair to the FAA’s “questions” by grounding the drone students have been using to stream football games.

Have some backbone, bureaucrats! In their own words, the students did it by the book. Use this as an opportunity to teach them how to stand up for themselves. Does anyone think ESPN isn’t doing this?

No progress was ever made, and nothing was ever learned, by backing down at the first hurdle.
