Mass. School Kids Now ‘Allowed’ To Say the Pledge of Allegiance
by Warner Todd Huston
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?
Nonetheless, that is the nation that liberals have turned these great United States into as after two months of wrangling Arlington, Massachusetts High School student Sean Harrington finally succeeded in getting his school administrators to allow the Pledge to be recited by students in class.
Arlington High School Principal Charles Skidmore told FoxNews.com that the policy has now been changed. “All principals in the district must ensure that the Pledge of Allegiance is said every school day in all classrooms,” he wrote in an email to the news channel.
Young Sean said he is pleased with the outcome.
“As a result of the controversy, I heard from many people both across the country and in our community who wanted the Pledge restored to our school. That’s all I was ever looking for on this issue — widespread community buy-in so that students would feel that they wanted to say the Pledge, not just that they had to,” he said.After decades of schools being scared silly by left-wing lawsuits trying to stop them form allowing displays of religion and patriotism in the classroom, many schools have summarily removed any possibility that they might be sued for such displays.
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.
