Atlanta school removes Pledge of Allegiance from morning ritual

Atlanta Journal Constitution

An Atlanta charter school will not recite the Pledge of Allegiance as part of its morning meeting agenda.

Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School on Grant Street announced the change Tuesday in a statement from elementary campus president Lara Zelski.  

The decision was made “in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community,” Zelski said. “Over the past couple of years it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand and/or recite the pledge.”

Students will be given the opportunity to say the pledge at another point during the school day and they will continue to be asked to stand to participate in the school’s Wolf Pack Chant each morning, according to the statement.

“Teachers and the K-5 leadership team will be working with students to create a school pledge that we can say together at morning meeting,” Zelski said.

That pledge, she said, “will focus on students’ civic responsibility to their school family, community, country and our global society.”

    Pledging to a flag or worshiping a song and the “controversy” surrounding it but never once touching on what actually represents US certainly is some kind of great diversionary tactic.

    Here’s a suggestion, they could teach the kids the Bill of Rights, what they mean and recite them.(I know that would never happen in amerikan schools because that would defeat their true purpose.)

    Get your kids out of these indoctrination centers or you WILL lose them to the state in one way shape or form.

    Classrooms full of future gangsters, learning how to rob other gangsters, who cares! Were talking Atlanta here, not some monk indoctrination center.

    22 inch chrome wheels, mac 10s, gold chains and racks of 100 dollar bills.

    I pledge a allegiance to the life, so help me god.
