To my American followers, do you really have to pledge allegiance at school everyday?
yes we had to do that every morning in elementary school
I also had to say the texas pledge during high school.
I got sent to the principal’s office in high school, for refusing to say the pledge. I didn’t get punished, the vice principal just let me hang out for a few, then sent me back to class, but my not saying the pledge was seen as so controversial that I was sent to the principal over it.
Said it every day of my life in grade school, and in high school. Had to stand and salute. Every class room had an American Flag we stood and faced and saluted to, every morning, every time. In High school it was done over the intercom. If we weren’t in a classroom, and were like walking between classes, we were expected to stop where we were walking, and face the large flag pole on campus, salute, and then continue walking.
