In Atlanta an elementary school is removing the Pledge of Allegiance. The school claims the change was for a “fully inclusive and connected community,” the school has plans to replace the Pledge with a new Pledge.
Campus president Lara Zelski issued a letter Tuesday to parents to announce the changes to the students’ morning meetings.
“One change that we made to our morning meeting agenda this year is that we will not be including the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance each morning,” Zelski wrote, adding that administrators will continue to ask the children to stand in participation of the school’s “Wolf Pack Chant.”
“Students will continue to lead the meeting by asking our community to stand to participate in our Wolf Pack Chant together,” Zelski continued in her letter.
Zelski continued explaining why they are removing the Pledge in the letter, “was made in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community.”
“Over the past couple of years it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand and/or recite the pledge,” Zelski wrote. “There are many emotions around this and we want everyone in our school family to start their day in a positive manner. After all, that is the whole purpose of our morning meeting.”
Zelske claimed teachers and leaders of the k-5 grade will help create a new Pledge.
“This pledge,” Zelski wrote, “will focus on students’ civic responsibility to their school family, community, country and our global society. I will keep you informed of the progress with this. I am really looking forward to what our students create.”
Parents who have actual pride in being a free American should be storming in the principle office and protest this awful unpatriotic decision. Lara Zelski is an awful human pile of debris for removing the pledge and she should move to North Korea and praise the Communist flag she clearly loves.
