Is your child required to recite the Pledge of Allegiance at school? Do you agree with this practice?

Yes, we say the pledge as a school. And yes, I agree with this practice of RESPECT. Stand quietly and show your respect if you choose not to recite. We are required to respect foreign cultures is school as well.

No, she is not required. No child should say it because not everyone believes in GOD and there are so many different cultures and practing religions that it would be wrong to impose such a practice.

Yeah, I hate it, it's a waste of time, and I don't mean what I recite or cross my fingers, or don't say anything at all.
I happen to be born on American soil, that's as far as I'm going to acknowledge my American heritage.

No child can lawfully be required to recite the Pledge if the family requests that the child be excused. As a parent and a teacher, I'd prefer that children be helped to understand what the words mean rather than just unknowingly recite them.

Everyday it's the Pledge of Allegiance, National Anthem AND Pledge to the Texas flag! It's a bit much. My kids take in stride and go along to humor their teachers. I object, but we're stationed in Texas and it's the Texas way apparently.

Do we send our children to school to learn, or to undergo psychological conditioning (brainwashing)? If the former, why are students being forced to waste their time in a daily mass recital?

I think once a week is fine, every day is too much, specially for lower grades.
It takes a lot of time out of the morning to line up all the kids, time that would be better spent learning. Also have an objection to "one nation under god" part.

Yes my children are required to. I only have a problem with the "under god" part because I do not brainwash my children to believe in fairy tales.

I believe all kids should say the pledge, especially those who are our newest immigrants. They should be saying the pledge in English - NOT SPANISH! If they don't want to, they should at least stand even if they choose to say nothing.
