    If they're gonna reject their country, then we should reject them from receiving US dollars to pay for their salaries, overhead, etc. Let 'em find some other way to pay for their existence.

    From the ANCS Board Chair
    Regarding the Pledge of Allegiance
    The following statement is from Lia Santos, Board Chair, Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School (ANCS) Governing Board:

    Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School has and will continue to provide students with an opportunity to recite the Pledge of Allegiance each school day. In the past, the Pledge of Allegiance was recited during our all-school morning meeting, but at the start of the school year, the daily practice was moved to classrooms. This change was done in compliance with state law [O.C.G.A. 20-2-310 (c)(1)] and aligned Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School with most other schools in the state who also say the Pledge of Allegiance in individual classrooms. However, 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.

    At ANCS, our priority is to provide our students with a safe and dynamic learning environment where they cultivate a love for learning, develop self-knowledge, and are constantly challenged to excel. We support our students in their growth and see it as our duty as educators to respect their First Amendment rights.

    We are working together with the school administration to ensure we address concerns and feedback from our school family, while continuing to uphold and support the rights of every member of our school community.

    Sincerely,
    Lia Santos – Governing Board Chair

    I bet your school says it every morning...:D. You see this all the time anymore about not saying the pledge in public schools and it is false for the most part just to get a reaction. Sis said they say it every morning where she taught and have for a long as she can remember in every school she worked at.
     
  10. It’s not “false for the most part”, I’m not researching it for you but I read recently it’s about 50/50 across the US.

    And you believe everything you read.
     
  12. Yeah man I hear ya, I read that 2 x 2 was 4 sometime years ago but I’m learning that ain’t so in the new version of the Democrat Socialist Party world of 2018 lmao, so you have got a point.

    Let me ask a question.....do you have your kid's say the pledge on weekends and other time school is not in session or do you feel it is up to the school system only to do that 5 days a week ?
