Hullaballoo over Pledge of Allegiance at PS 29

By Lisa M. Collins

Schools citywide are reinstating the Pledge of Allegiance after a story in The New York Daily News revealed a debate over the matter at PS 29, in Cobble Hill. The whole thing started when a local parent/firefighter realized his daughter, who attends PS 29, did not know the pledge of allegiance. Schools are required to recite it, but kids and teachers are allowed to opt-out if they choose.
