This one’s kind of wild, folks. A teacher in Montgomery County, Md., had a 13-year-old girl taken out of class by police after the girl refused to say the Pledge of Allegiance two days in a row.
Raw Story has the story:
A 13-year-old female student at Roberto Clemente Middle School in Germantown refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance on Jan. 27. The teacher reportedly ordered the girl out into the hallway, where he threatened the girl with detention and then sent her to the school counselor’s office.
The next day, when the student again refused to stand for the pledge, the teacher called school officers to remove her from the classroom and take her to the counselor’s office once again.
The ACLU is on the case, which looks like slam-dunk against the teacher.
