Atlanta Elementary School Tries To Oust The Pledge Of Allegiance

At what point did Democrats lose all sense of Patriotism. It used to be that everyone would stand up for the flag. All Americans used to have national pride. It wasn’t a Republican or Democrat thing. It was Patriotism. But now standing for the flag has somehow become a negative thing for some Americans.

This sentiment is reaching our schools as an Atlanta Elementary Charter School attempted to remove The Pledge of Allegiance for being too divisive.

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Which part?

The Elementary Campus President, Lara Zelski, commented on the change.

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.”

The news quickly spread and the school received numerous complaints about the new morning chant that would replace The Pledge.

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.”

The school quickly backpedaled and released a statement.

By about 6:15 p.m., the school issued a statement saying its 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.” ”

Patriotism prevailed this time. But this a sign of our times. A time when Patriotism seems to be at risk.
