Public High School in Massachusetts won't let students say pledge of allegiance

The reason for this is really stunning.

When Sean Harrington entered his freshman year at Arlington High School, he noticed something peculiar: There were no American flags in the classrooms, and no one recited the Pledge of Allegiance.

So Harrington enlisted the aid of his fellow students, and now, three years later, they have succeeded in getting flags installed in the classrooms. But the pledge still will not be recited.

The Arlington, Mass., school committee has rejected the 17-year-old's request to allow students to voluntarily recite the Pledge of Allegiance, because some educators are concerned that it would be hard to find teachers willing to recite it, according to a report in the Arlington Patch. . . .

Have I missed something in the above text? Some teachers may not recite it, and this is grounds to deny the fundamental right as expressed above?

Obviously, PC is far more important to a minority of individuals who do understand Disraeli, yet fail to understand the damage that liberalism incurs...

"The tone and tendency of liberalism...is to attack the institutions of the country under the name of reform and to make war on the manners and customs of the people under the pretext of progress."
