Brighton Schools Take Closer Look At Pledge Procedures

(WLNS) – At its meeting Monday night, the Brighton Board of Education debated the subject of whether the Pledge of Allegiance is being offered universally in district classrooms, as it is supposed to be under state law.

According to our media partners at WHMI, the board discussed whether the district is in compliance with a law that requires all public school districts to give all students an opportunity to recite the pledge each day.

No formal action was taken by the board. One member said the district had been inadequate in offering the pledge on a consistent basis in classrooms, particularly at the high school level.

The state law took effect at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year and requires giving students an opportunity to recite the pledge each day, although they aren’t compelled to recite it.
