After being confronted by the Lorain 9.12 Meet-Up Group on their attempts of outlawing students from citing the Pledge of Allegiance during school...
"In Lorain county we have undertaken an initiative to get the pledge of allegiance back into the Oberlin public school system. We have attended school board meetings and sent mass mailings and done precinct walking. Unfortunately the best we have managed is a pathetic comprise offer of someone saying the pledge, excluding "under God", over the intercom once a month."
... the camp guards (school board) running the Youth Indoctrination Program for the Oberlin School District issued this edict regarding the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance....
"Citing the pledge of allegiance is not a part of each structured school day. However, at least once and no more than five times each month, as determined by the building principal, the pledge of allegiance shall be read over the public address system in each school building. The pledge of allegiance is an acknowledgment of the freedoms enjoyed by Americans, which includes the rights of dissent and freedom of expression. Teachers are responsible for ensuring that in each classroom no student is to be compelled to join in reciting the pledge, nor shall any student be compelled to refrain from reciting the pledge. Any incidence of hazing, discrimination, bullying, or other form of disparagement of a student choice regarding recitation of the pledge will be considered a major disciplinary infraction and will be referred to the principal for consequences.
The pledge of allegiance and the accompanying preamble will be read together on all occasions of recitation of the pledge: "All students are equally welcome to remain silent or to join in reciting the pledge of allegiance; I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
In addition, the Superintendent shall issue Administrative Guidelines to assure that the Pledge of Allegiance and its historical context will be taught at an appropriate level of sophistication as part of the curriculum in each grade level.
Thank you for your support!
The above edict is just wrong on so many levels. And I always thought the historical context of the Pledge of Allegiance was taught in history class. I guess the "remove all aspects of "God & Country" from our schools changed that. As we now see - the Oberlin School District will refer students to the Superintendent for "re-education" should they fail to adhere by the indoctrination program. Boy, dont I feel like a "stupid American."
Isn't it ironic that as the jack boots intensify their efforts to remove "God & Country" from our schools and the minds of our children they are more than wiling to accept government money bearing those soon to be illegal words - "In God We Trust."
With this, I urge everyone to contact the Oberlin School District and let's help them out. I believe we should all contact these goose-stepping educrats and force them to stand on their beliefs - by asking them to reject any future form of government funding. If they did - wouldn't that be a double standard? Wouldn't that make them hypocrites? After all they are recieving it from the government of the country they no longer wish to embrace and it bears that terrible - "In God We Trust" phrase.

Just in case these korrectnik educrats are busy charging up their cattle prods for hall duty and can't get to their emails- let's come together like good Americans and help them out by contacting our elected State of Ohio officials, Ohio Board of Education & Ohio School Board Association and urge them to remove Oberlin School District from the government payroll.
