Another mandatory pledge law?

By | January 13, 2004

Why create a law forcing the pledge of allegiance to be said in schools? “We’re trying to create patriotism on the cheap,” [Democratic state representative Terrance D. Carroll] said. “Pledges don’t create more love for your country.” The idea obviously should be that people who say the pledge want to say the pledge.

I actually like the Colorado law requiring the pledge to be said in schools. The new wording of the law allows students and teachers to opt out of saying the pledge for any reason at all. But I still question why the law has to be there anyway.
