Teacher suspended for forcing student to say Pledge of Allegiance

pledgeA Florida teacher was suspended last month for forcing a fourth grader to participate in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Anne Daigle-McDonald, a teacher at Explorer K-8 School in Spring Hill, Fla., made the student, a Jehovah’s Witness, place his hand over his heart during the Sept. 11 pledge, according to a report by the Tampa Bay Times. When he resisted, she said, “You are an American, and you are supposed to salute the flag,” the boy told a school administrator.
