An Atlanta charter school has nixed the morning Pledge of Allegiance, a long held American tradition, in an effort to be more “inclusive,” first reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The Pledge was banned “in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community,” school president Lara Zelski said. “Over the past couple of years it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand and/or recite the pledge.”
Instead, the school will give students an opportunity to say the Pledge at a different point in the day, by choice. The Pledge was replaced with the school’s timeless classic, the “Wolf Pack Chant,” which apparently focuses on “school family, community, country, and our global society.”
