Pledge of Allegiance Incident Proves We Need More Critical Thinking

A middle school girl is scolded, embarrassed and banished from the classroom for refusing to stand for the pledge of allegiance in Pennsylvania. And what makes this story even more disturbing is that she was refused medical care by a school nurse because of it.

The American Humanist Association, an humanist group, has sent a letter of complaint to Pennsylvania's Carlisle Area School District. So far, the school district hasn't said what it plans to do, only saying, "It is aware of the allegations and is investigating."

This child's battle is not over!
