Public pledge

December 6, 2001


In part due to the school board's actions, my school, West Junior High will begin reciting the Pledge of Allegiance on Monday, Dec. 10. Although it is not mandatory for students to recite the pledge, if everyone in the classroom is reciting it, people who would otherwise not want to will be compelled to.

I will be interested to see if anybody in my class will decide to abstain from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, because I'm sure there are some who won't want to but will do so anyway due to peer pressure.
