The report stated:
The atheist group the American Humanist Association said a high school senior reached out after his teacher threatened him with punishment in front of the class for sitting out the Pledge of Allegiance.
The AHA then sent a letter to the New Castle County Vocational-Technical School District citing a 1943 Supreme Court ruling, which gives students the right to sit out the pledge.
The school responded the AHA in an email, saying no punishment was given to the student and that the pledge is optional.
“No effort is being made to persuade students to refrain from exercising their respective right to opt out, and no discipline has been, or will be, administered for opting out of the pledge,” the school responded.
Should public schools, funded by American taxpayers abide by a 1943 Supreme Court ruling-is the ruling right? Those foreigners who go through the process to become naturalized citizens, at the very end of going through tests on American history and the long paperwork needed- have one final act. They must, in a public ceremony say the pledge and promise to take up arms for America if needed. Allowing a defiant high school student to sit out pledging allegiance, maybe the option should be he just sit out school altogether. Enough of the PC rhetoric, and coddling ridiculous actions, citing his civil rights. Americans have grown tired of nonsense.

Must have idiots running that school
Yet Islam is now being pushing in schools all across America as part of common core ..liberals are evil Marxist inspired anti American scum . Look at everything they do ! Wake up.
Gosh Don thanks for sharing with me how the Supreme Court and the Constitution work! However, there is also a process called an Appellate Process, as well as seeking an Ammendment to the Constitution that are both fair game! As I don’t know how much you LOVE our current Educational System, I cannot imagine your endpoint with this conversation: mind sharing?
right, because a traitor to the country would BURST INTO FLAMES if he said the pledge? that’s ridiculous.
I suspect people who are loud and overt about their “allegience”.
Maybe we should make your paychecks ..optional?
Our country is so upside down that few understand
why we say the Pledge of Allegiance. One day, they will understand when, not if, Allah is mandatory or else…just sayin’.
