On Standing for the Pledge

When and why did this even become a thing???

Teachers teaching kids to not respect our flag and our country

This has been a hot button issue just as the national anthem, but it shouldn’t be.  The only political bias that should be taught in the classroom is to respect your flag and love your country.  No matter what president or which party is in office the president and the flag should be respected.  They especially shouldn’t be taught how to disrespect them either.

I know people say “Its freedom of speech!” if the kids don’t stand.  Who taught the kids that?  When I was going to school I would have been ashamed to not stand for the flag.  I feel schools should be bringing in local veterans once a year to talk to the kids what the flag means and why they’re even standing in the first place.
