Florida teacher reprimands student taking knee during pledge (video)

A Florida school district confirmed a teacher should not have reprimanded a student for abstaining from saying the pledge of allegiance. (see video below)

We certainly would not want to infringe on anyone’s rights.

A lawyer says the Florida statute is ‘not punishable’ and the student should have been allowed to kneel as long as the student does not disrupt the class.

A student cannot be legally punished for doing so even if the school has a rule against it.

The last part of the video reveals the school has asked parents to provide a note about the student’s plans. Of course, the school can ask for anything but that does not mean the student or the student’s parents are obliged to provide this.
