School reverses its decision after backlash for trashing the Pledge of Allegiance

Submitted by MAGA Student

This morning, the Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School informed parents they would no longer recite the Pledge of Allegiance as part of its morning meeting agenda.The decision to stop the pledge was made "in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community." After some backlash, the school reversed its decision.

From ajc.com


An early morning online news headline said the pledge had been eliminated from the morning ritual. The story mentioned moving the pledge to a later time, but political news sites seized on the word “elimination” in the headline, attracting backlash, and the school's reversal by the end of Thursday.


Georgia House Speaker David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, weighed in, praising the Pledge of Allegiance's tenets and ending with, “I’m sure our House Education Committee will examine whether taxpayer funds should be used to instill such a divisive ideology in our students.”

Gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp jumped in, doubling down on Ralston’s statement.

By about 6:15 p.m., the school issued a statement saying it's policies were aligned with those of the Georgia Department of Education but " … it appears there was some miscommunication and inconsistency in the rollout. Starting next week, we will return to our original format and provide our students with the opportunity to recite the Pledge during the all-school morning meeting."

All those who were a part of the decision to not do the pledge, should be removed immediately from anything to do with the kids at the school...

    I just got paid 12k d0llar working off my laptop this month. And if you think that’s cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do... Go this web and start your work.... www.jobs63.com

"such a divisive ideology"

If reciting the Pledge of Allegiance is dividing you and me, your're not an American and you need to find a different country to live in.
