Reader says skipping pledge may be a right, but it’s not appropriate
To the Editor:
Upon observation and visitations throughout KISD middle and high schools, large numbers of students do not participate in the morning Pledge of Allegiance to the United States flag and the state of Texas.
I am left to wonder why, exactly what does this mean, how many of these students have parents serving or have served in our military — and are their parents aware of the student’s behavior.
We are at a time when many criticize the disrespect some athletes may demonstrate to our flag and anthem, yet many of our public school students are exercising the same constitutional right.
Meaning, just because you have the right to do something, doesn’t mean its appropriate to do.
