This is still the United States of America, isn’t it?
As reported at Fox News, school children in the Arlington Public School district will now be“ALLOWED” to say the Pledge of Allegiance. Yes, you heard that correct … “ALLOWED”. Remember when this was common place in every classroom at the start of the school day?
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
Students at Massachusetts high schools in Arlington can rejoice — they’ll be allowed to recite the Pledge of Allegiance this fall.
Nearly two months after deadlocking on a proposal by senior Sean Harrington, the Arlington Public School Committee unanimously approved a new pledge policy on Tuesday night that allows principals at each school to determine how the pledge will be recited each day.
“Yes, the policy has been changed,” Arlington High School Principal Charles Skidmore told FoxNews.com in an email. “All principals in the district must ensure that the Pledge of Allegiance is said every school day in all classrooms.”
More from the Gateway Pundit and the acts of a true patriot.
What sort of nation have we become when it takes monumental efforts by a kid to get a school administration to “allow” them all to recite the Pledge of Allegiance?
Then you add to this idiotic situation the fact that many school administrators and teachers fully agree with the anti-American and anti-religion agenda of the left in our schools.
In any case, congratulations to young Sean Harrington for sticking to his guns and proving that he is a true American.
EXIT QUESTION: Why would any one who lives in the United States not want to say the pledge of alligiance and more so, try and prevent other from doing so?
