    No, you're wrong. I was disliked by most teachers and most students as most severely abused children are since we don't learn proper social values or skills. That said, my not standing was simply considered a reflection of my stubbornness, not a punishable offense.

    Nice appeal, but nope. He cannot be compelled to recite the pledge, but he can be required to stand with the rest of the class. And yes, students are required to follow the teacher's instructions. Teacher says you stand, you stand. Sorry if that trips your fascism meter, but wait, no I'm not.

    I admire your confidence in your wrongness.

    See, I can be snarky, too.

    I doubt your teachers "disliked you". They probably weren't thrilled with your behavior, but may have understood it's source and thus gave you a break. There were most likely a lot of your teachers that gave you breaks that obviously remain invisible to you to this day.

    We all already knew that later.

    As for your continued grasping at straws to repair your stance on what is a simple disciplinary issue, keep grasping at thin air.

    This is going to be a "Slam Dunk" for the ACLU if this does go to court.

    That would make you proud? Would you in turn say the Nazis had a few good ideas? Or, would you admit that just because a Socialist, or a Nazi, or a Communist had a good idea, that it doesn't make up for all their bad ideas?

    Yeah, except they won't touch this with your dick. They have limited resources and chose cases that matter.

    I've noticed that some conservatives are so afraid of socialism, they would rather turn down an idea just because it had originated from the mind of a socialist.
