In today’s Tallahassee Democrat, Leon County Schools have been chided. It seems the state legislature passed a measure allowing students to opt out of the Pledge of Allegiance. The Department of Education said the district went too far by creating a form to do so and putting it in the Student Handbook. The State is involved in a lawsuit over parent’s rights to opt their children out of tests, but it is OK to opt out of the Pledge of Allegiance as long as you do not tell parents?
What is that Shakespearian line: Something is rotten in Denmark? Should we be thinking about other things to improve our educational system?
