So many people still question this? Don't many elementary school students still recite the pledge of allegiance at the beginning of the school day?

Gotta say "Yes!" for Cincy since it's my former home. Good to hear it is still said in many schools around the country.
Teaches12345, I'm in New Richmond school district.
Yay! So many people are passing around stuff saying it should still be in schools. Sounds like it is!
Cool, Paul. Thanks for sharing that!
That's neat! I didn't know that high schools said it much. I thought that it was usually elementary schools that say it. Interesting!
That's neat, Rosie!
That's neat, Glimmer Twin Fan. How do you know about Wash DC? From people who live there? I'm curious. Weird, since it's where the capitol is! :-)
State law, huh? Cool!
Good to know, Rose. Thanks!
Good Point! When I was teaching I had a student who was JW - I made him my attendance runner so that he wasn't in the classroom during the pledge.
Yeah, one of my best friends was JW, and she told me that they didn't--or observe holidays or birthdays. We weren't in Elementary school together, though, and our school didn't do the pledge in high school, I don't think. I'm sure she sat it out.
Thanks for asking your kids, Kelly! Interesting that they do it only on Mondays. I guess that's good enough! :-)
