Michigan Senate passes bill requiring pledge of allegiance in schools
from The Huffington Post
A bill that requires every Michigan public school student to start the day by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance has been approved by the state Senate. The Republican led Senate passed the bill 31-5 that carries two provisions: requiring students to recite the pledge and mandating that every public school purchase a flag for each of its classrooms. The school board would also be required to ensure that those flags are displayed. The bill does note, however, that a student "shall not be compelled" to participate against objections by the student or the student's parents.
