Reading, Writing, and Flag Burning

I meant to write about this story a few weeks ago. Dan Holden, a teacher in Jefferson County, Florida, burned a flag in front of his middle school students to "motivate his students for a weekend writing assignment on the freedom of speech."

What is your opinion of the legality of his actions. Free speech, right?

Let's say that Mr. Holden decided to exercise another one of his First Amendment rights. What if he decided to pray in class to demonstrate Free Exercise of Religion?
