I would bet that you are in the minority in that one. I can quite honestly say that I've never heard of schools that didn't say it. We had a discussion in a class on the Constitution on this very topic, and of the 17 kids in the room, every single one (mostly from liberal northeastern areas) said the pledge through all of high school.Originally Posted by independent_thinker2002
So....your point is? It's not mandated.Really I don't think it has any use other than superficial ceremonial value. The pledge doesn't make you more loyal to your country any more than swearing to tell the truth in court.
Singing the national anthem doesn't "do" anything either, but tell that to major league baseball. Hell, the flag doesn't "do" anything either, nor does Mt. Rushmore.
