Pledge of Allegiance

Every wonder why the Pledge of Allegiance is not recited in school any more, mainly because school officials choice to ignore the law or they simply do not inform the students of their rights. Indiana Law requires that school provide a daily opportunity to do so as stated below.

“The governing body of each school corporation shall provide a daily opportunity for students of the school corporation to voluntarily recite the Pledge of Allegiance in each classroom or on school grounds. A student is exempt from participation in the Pledge of Allegiance and may not be required to participate in the Pledge of Allegiance if: (1) the student chooses to not participate; or (2) the student’s parent chooses to have the student not participate.” Ind. Code §20-30-5-0.5.
