The Pledge of Alligence

one nation under God??

The Controversy

On a daily basis students are required to recite the pledge but in recent headlines it has been highlighted that our nations pledge to our country says God. Many parents and educators believe that this is evoking the wrong message to some non religious students and the line "one nation under God" should be removed altogether from the pledge. The pledge dates back to eighteen ninety- two and has had small changes to it but to change it to conform and appease society is not something that we as a country should do. I feel we should educate our students on the pledge and why we say it every day, and what those words truly mean.
