always loved the people who force allegiance to liberty....
A school spokesman said Tuesday that the teacher's actions were a clear violation of the school's regulations, which are based on state law. The teacher, who also has not been identified by either side, will have to apologize to the student, spokesman Dana Tofig said.
"The policy is very, very clearly stated," Tofig said. "Our teachers are expected to know the students' rights and responsibilities. . . . A mistake has been made, and it will be rectified."
Was the student a negro?
Having children stand up and recite a "pledge of allegiance" every school day is ridiculous to begin with. People can decide for themselves where their loyalties lie when they're adults.
Call me simple, but it's tradition in my book .....
The ACLU got it ruled several years back that we could not force children to say or even learn the Pledge of Allegiance.
Just another reason I can't stand the ACLU.

Tradition is freedom of speech. Having the police escort someone from the classroom for not saying something is just not right.
Glad you are for freedom of speech...
