Pledge Of Allegiance Bill Passes Senate

Public schools would have to make time for students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance every school day, under a bill the state Senate passed unanimously on Tuesday. The bill would require school boards to adopt policies on reciting the pledge; display of U.S. and North Carolina flags, if available, in each classroom; and instruct students on the meaning and origins of both flags, the pledge, and the state motto. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1943 that states cannot compel anyone to salute the flag and say the pledge.
