Should Schools Allow A Pledge Of Allegiance Opt-Out?

A school in Florida apparently sent home a Pledge Of Allegiance opt-out form giving parents the option to allow their kids to sit out the daily pledge.

KHOU reports a student’s uncle posted the note to social media and it’s going viral.

Should students be allowed to sit out the Pledge of Allegiance?  The pledge instills patriotism in students and it’s a way to teach kids about our Nation and values, but then again the daily pledge stops after high school.

We do not start our work day with a Pledge of Allegiance and that does not make us any less patriotic. Maybe kids should be given the option (after learning about our history and values) to whether or not they want to say a pledge daily. It’s an interesting issue and I’d like to know your thoughts. Let us know if you would let your kid decide whether or not they want to say the daily pledge or if you think it should be required.

Also, should we continue saying the pledge even after K-12?
