I see a lot of conservatives post on fb about how they are angry that the pledge of allegiance was taken out of the classroom. Thought I'd see how prevelent this was. Do you believe that schools no longer recite the pledge of allegiance?

I did it every morning just last year.

Side note: my US history teacher was the head of the schools union. He was sent to Bosie when the state legislature wanted to make Idaho students recite the pledge before EVERY CLASS.

When I was in public school we recited it daily. When I was in private we never recited it. It honestly doesn’t make much of a difference to me. I don’t think it’s indicative of your love for the country. Especially at that age.

Schools should do it every day

My American school district didn’t do it at all, for any grade.

Our elementary school does it every morning. Southern California.

Every school I’ve been in in the last 37 years has said the pledge in the morning. They don’t all play the star spangled banner but the pledge is there.

I’m a high school teacher. We recite the pledge every day at the start of school. All students are required to stand and be quiet. They are not required to recite if they choose not to. BTW, we also have a moment of silence before the pledge. I usually say a quick prayer to myself. Students are not expected to do anything but be quiet. However, it also provides an opportunity for those who would like to do more.

Why would you allow your kids to sit through it?

I don't care if they sit through it, as long as they don't talk or sit there on their cell phones and good off

Having said that, no one really does. I've had 1 student sit once, but a lot will stand in silence

Is what required? The pledge? We do it with the whole school over the announcements

I’m in Texas. They do it over the announcements.

Why would I️ make them stand? What’s the purpose in making them?

I support the remove of the pledge of allegiance.

Nothing worse then havimg your child resite a verbal contract to a goverment.

05/31/18 5:53 am

Maybe they do resite.

Do they go elsewhere and repeat it?

Robert97206 Portland Oregon

Possibly- i doubt it.

But the Pledge of Allegiance is literally propaganda.
