    That's not the teacher's opinion. It's yours. Now tell me why I should care about your opinion?

    Then why should anyone care about yours? Especially when so many times your opinions have not been backed up by facts.

    Maybe it was different when I was in HS, but there were alot of kids who didnt say the pledge, and no one (at least out loud anyway) gave a damm. I personally dont support forced patriotism

    Here's the point ludahai, it doesn't matter how much you scream this is indoctrination. It wasn't something kids were being forced to on a mass scale. It wasn't something they needed to do in order to remain in the school. It was an assignment. She didn't do it because she didn't like it? Good for her. Now she has an F. She's not being kicked out of class. She's not being told she can't come to school. She's not being ostracized by her community. She got an F. That's it.

    Indoctrination is what christians do to their children. You know, force them to go to church. Force them to pray to some imaginary fairy. Force them to believe in something which makes no sense to rational adults.

    That my old friend, is indoctrination. Refusing to do school work? Lol, that's just life.

    It would have been far more applicable had they had her demonstrate how to make a taco in front of class, explaining the process in Spanish.

    For extra credit, she could have explained how to have an anchor baby, or apply for welfare .... in Spanish.

    I would actually argue that this is one of the first steps towards indoctrination and that the teacher is bordering on near treasonous behaviour...

    Gotta luv the liberal response. Trying to turn her into an illegal immigrant sympathizing liberal is OK. God forbid she worship a Christain fairy.

    Any doubt as to what is becoming so ****ed up with this country ?

    I want the OWS folks to start to protest that everyone has to pay at least some income tax. Liberals need to be brought to some accountability like all the rest of us. Time to toe the line with the rest of us libs.

    Again with the ugly remarks.

    Not every latino in the US is here illegally; not every latino in the US is Mexican.
