Does your child's school do the pledge every day?

At what age do they stop? Our public school only does it through Kindergarten. Seems kinda young to stop.

  • My son is in a Catholic school and they say it everyday. It's K-8. I don't know if it's the same once in high school.

  • nope.
    I homeschool and will teach it when they are old enough to truly grasp the sobriety and significance of such an oath, and to decide for themselves whether to take it. And I'll teach the actual pledge, not the "under god" revision.

  • We say it everyday at our public school, in unison at the direction of the Principal over the loud speaker. K-6. It is a nice way to start the day, I love to hear those little voices!

  • I am a Junior in high school. I stopped doing the pledge when I was a Freshman. Our school system does it until 8th grade.

  • My boys school does the pledge over the intercom every morning right after a moment of silence for whatever they choose. As my oldest son teacher says you can use it for saying a prayer, thinking a thought, or whatever a long as you are quiet.
