It isn't illegal but you can be confronted by the child's parents, because some religions don't say the pledge to the flag, so he can stand. He doesn't have to say it or put his or her hand over their chest, but standing is permitted. I had a guy like that in my class once when I was in High school. He was Muslim. He wouldn't stand up for the pledge. The teacher was upset, but he was okay with standing but not saying it.

AnswerI pledge allegiance, To every flag, on our planet Earth

and for our planet we will remain equals, all nations under god

with liberty and justice for all.

The current pledge is something that no one should have to stand for or even have the desire to stand for. The modern day America is anything but free. And why one nation under god? are we to honestly believe that America is the only nation god watches...because to me it looks like god has given up on us a long long time ago or this corruption of our leaders would not continue.Liberty and Justice for all is also complete fiction. What about 9/11? there was a lot of Justice there. I can not tell you i am 100% sure the government (who were sworn to protect us) committed such an injustice, but the evidence and facts shown leaves me to believe they have betrayed us. I am only 16 years old but I have taught myself not to believe what I am told but rather what i see. The truth is hidden behind all these lies that keep these government officials safe and I will find it.

Did Mexico force settlers to speak Spanish?

No. The Mexican government government only required for settlers to pledge allegiance to Mexico and observe Mexico's law and customs. They never did it anyways, which resulted in frictions with the government and eventually, the Texas Revolution (1835-1836).

Can a teacher force a student to take a class?

They can refer a student to a class or a tutor, or refuse them admittance to a higher-level class, if they feel the student's performance is weak. If a teacher is the only one for a subject at a given school, the student will be forced to take their class, if it is a required one, or in a field they want to study. If a student feels they have been wronged or mistreated, they can speak with a school counselor, or their parents with a counselor or administrator.

What happens if a Jehovah's Witness takes the Pledge of Allegiance?

He or she made a mistake. They will likely feel disappointed with themselves for doing it, as they know its completely wrong to pledge allegiance to any country. But people make mistakes. We all make mistakes - it might have been they were weak at that time and just got put under a bit too much pressure to endure. There could have been many reasons why. They would need to come to terms with it in relation to their conscience and relationship with Jehovah. Being the only person in a crowd of people not singing a national anthem, or the only person not saluting a flag is not the worst thing that can happen. No one is under obligation to pledge allegiance to anything they don't want to - this right exists in America because brave young children several decades ago refused to do so, and so were expelled from school. The issue eventually went to the Supreme Court, and their finding was that it is not constitutional to force anyone to give up conscience and political neutrality for the state. If young children can be firm for what they believe, anyone can.

As a teacher, I found out a student was planning on getting her GED and joining the Air Force. Which branches of the military will allow people to enlist with a GED?

All. Army is easiest, then marines/Navy. Coast Guard and Air Force are equally more selective. With a GED, The USMC, Navy and Army will all accept her. The Air Force sometimes does, they do a case by case scenario and it's a toss up if she will get in or not.

Nothing. God has not struck down on anyone. Leaders rise to power and die(because they are human). Using God as the never-dying force just keeps the country together as leadership changes hands.

How can an atheist be an American patriot when he cannot even honestly recite the Pledge of Allegiance?

America has many patriotic, atheistic citizens. Isn't one of our basic freedoms under the united States Constitution the freedom from a state sponsored religion? You need to be educated about an "honest" pledge of allegiance to our country. It has nothing to do with religious beliefs. It is assumed you are referring to the phrase referring to God that was added during WW II. "One nation under God" represents the persistent and ever-present intrusion by religious based groups into the United States government.Many people are confused by those words in the Pledge of Allegiance and that's understandable. However, it's not so confusing when you remind yourself that we have a secular government in the United States even though persistent religionists have attempted for centuries to inject God into our government by adding religious symbols to government buildings and religious phrases to our coins, currency, pledges and oaths. The US Constitution guarantees freedom from a government sponsored religion.The Pledge of Allegiance was adopted by the United States Congress in 1942 and was originally written by Francis Bellamy in 1896. Bellamy was a socialist. The phrase, "One nation under God" was added to the pledge by a joint resolution of Congress in 1954 after successful lobbying efforts by George MacPherson Docherty, a Presbyterian pastor in New York who impressed President Eisenhower. Many objections have been raised ever since and the pledge remains controversial with many citizens choosing to remain seated during its recitation. You should also be made aware that many citizens remain seated during the pledge because of their objections to the phrase, "with liberty and justice for all", since that has not been the experience of all Americans at all times. Requiring students to recite the pledge has been ruled unconstitutional in Florida and a Maryland school district had to pay damages to a student. Other courts have ruled it is not a violation of the separation of church and state although those decisions are mind boggling to those who revere that separation. Some school systems encourage students to recite the pledge and as many do not.Consider this, you are the one who is unpatriotic by trying to force your personal religious beliefs on the citizens of the United States whether they share your personal beliefs or not.It should be noted that some Christians (notably Quakers and Christian Reformed Church members) are of the opinion that they cannot swear oaths citing James 5:12 where Christians are commanded not to swear any oath. (James 5:12 Above all, my brothers and sisters, do not swear-not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. All you need to say is a simple "Yes" or "No." Otherwise you will be condemned.)

How do you get your teacher to let you sit where you want in class?

You can not force a teacher to let you sit where you want, but you can not talk to others during class so your teacher can see that you can restrain yourself from talking. Maybe mention it one or two times.
