A controversy over the Pledge of Allegiance at an elementary school has divided a small New York town and resulted in the resignation of a school board member.
Rosemarie Troidl told Fox News Radio she resigned as a member of the North Collins School Board after her fellow board members refused to order students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance together.
“We were raised to respect the flag,” Troidl said, suggesting it was an issue of patriotism. “There’s no excuse for the board to have allowed this.”
She said around 250 people have signed a petition asking the school board to change the policy and direct children at North Collins Elementary School to recite the Pledge in unison.
Troidl "pulled a Palin" so she is obviously qualified to be the next President I suppose.
This is yet another example of how conservatives are more than willing to turn anything in to a controversy and make it seem like public schools are destroying our children.
