Yeah, that includes our own pledge of allegiance.

Fire away.

Actually the law states that they can not be forced to say the pledge to our country. That being the case how in the hell can they force her to say the pledge to another country?Huh

The same way they can discipline an elementary school student for simply mentioning guns in a casual conversation . . . the teacher doesn't give a damn about the law or the kid's personal morality or ethics. It's all about the agenda.

I understand the point Dave makes, but the teacher could have very easily chosen something else to recite in Spanish that would fulfill the assignment. Choice of words matters.

We learned all kinds of folk songs in Spanish when I was a junior high student in Laredo, TX. Spanish was a required class at that time.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

They can't, which is why she's suing, and rightfully so.

I like this write up.

"Since 1943, the law has been clear that public school students cannot be forced to recite or otherwise participate in the Pledge of Allegiance against their will. In the case West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette, the Supreme Court found that the right to remain silent during the Pledge of Allegiance stems from the First Amendment to the United States Constitution."

Here's hoping she gets a jury that truly understands why this is important.

Fine that there is a law where they can't be forced to say the Pledge but I was happily surprised when my kid recited it because I honestly didn't think they were still doing it every morning. I for one am glad they still do.

I'll leave you guys to your outrage. Smile
