In Texas? WTH happened to “Remember the Alamo”?
publik skoolz are publik skoolz, no matter where they are located. People need to get over the false notion that “my schools are different”... they ain’t
I think this is an attempt to retake Texas. And Arizona. And New Mexico. Etc.
The teacher, Ms. Santos should be in an unemployment line, not only for denying this student her rights but for breaking her own school district rules.
Doesn’t swearing allegiance to a foreign power disqualify your American citizenship?
When I was a Freshman at the Univ. of California the rule was first year u had to live in the dorms. Periodically the Resident Advisor required all tenants to attend some stupid indoctrination thing.
One time it was HOMO stuff:
They went around the big circle, and each had to introduce themselves, saying their name, “I’m xx and I’m GAY”.
It was to break down stereotypes, or something.
Tell these jerks to go pound sand.
How was she forced? Did they torture her?
All she had to do was not say it.
The “public school”, including the “charter school”, is BY FAR, the largest, most expensive, most subversive, and most destructive entitlement program in the country.
The “public school” is better understood as the “government school collective”.
It is silly to imagine that you can fix the public schools, because the very concept itself is collectivist.
Any child that comes out of the government school collective with their moral compass and common sense intact does so in spite of the government school indoctrination, not because of it.
To understand the content and compass of modern education, see ...
If you want to win the culture war, have lots of children (see my tagline) and homeschool them or form your own school cooperative with your church or synagogue and like-minded friends and relatives.
Nobody loves your children more than you do.
Nobody can teach your children better than you can.
Nobody knows your children better than you do.
Your children would love nothing better than to be taught by you, if you start doing so before they are corrupted by the government school collective.
It is hypocritical for you to submit your children to an authority with whom you fundamentally disagree. And your children will know it.
If you have children, make whatever sacrifices you must to get them out of the public schools.
DO NOT FEED THE BEAST!
Especially not with your own children.
And DO NOT TAKE GOVERNMENT “EDUCATION” MONEY!
He that pays the piper calls the tune, and that’s especially true for any government entitlement program.
I guess you can say anything in an educational setting. Except for POW or BANG BANG. Or some war-like or violent-type thing. Pledging allegiance to another country in school is the peaceful way of having a revolution. Oh, and you must not talk about homosexuality unless you approve of it.
On May 5th (Cinqo de Drinko) 2012 in Morgan Hill, California two boys showed up wearing T-shirt that featured very neutral American flags:
The principle called them into his office, telling them to CHANGE —they were insensitive.
They refused, were sent home, and then suspended.

From the article:
When Brinsdon refused to back down she was punished, the lawsuit alleges. She was given an alternative assignment on the Independence of Mexico. The teacher gave her a failing grade and then required the student to sit in class over a period of several days to listen to other students recite the Mexican flag.
My son was “exposed” to this same kind of gay indoctrination crap when he was a freshman at Va. Tech in 2001.
What happens in a city that is 95% Mestizo, Illegal Alien, and Third World.
To force someone to pay homage to another flag, especially one that hates the US and sends its trash over....that is treason
Privatize education—all of it.
McAllen? Sounds like some of the school staff should be placed on a bus and transported across the border to MX to stay.
No grandson of mine will be forced to sing the MX National Anthem or pledge alegance to that place.
The DC maggots are sure trying to stir up Texas. They had best be careful what they wish for.
I pledge alegance to the US Flag and then the Texas Flag every month at meetings of a group I have been affiliated with since I was 21 (am 65 now). That organization was the first institution chartered in the Republic of Texas. That moment runs deeply here, regardles of what the news reports. You can take that one to the bank.
I have seen some of the homework assignments my niece gets, they are very very leftist
