    Key is that foreign kids came to the US and had to say the US pledge. These kids - if true - have to take the Mexican pledge in the US - appalling if true.

    Old news. Happened over a year ago.

    I approve of studying other cultures and societies. I don't approve of having students pledge loyalty to a foreign power.

    The video quality wasn't very good. The children in the video looked to be Hispanic but I couldn't see that they were being unwillingly forced to say the pledge to the Mexican flag. Maybe there is more to this story.

    Elementary school students do what they're told.

    They have no concept of "indoctrination".

    This is an abomination.

    :laugh: Oh Yeah , that'll be the day! Maybe you can get some Elementary School Teachers to verify that.

    As I said before, The video quality wasn't that good but as near as what I could percieve the children looked t be hispanic so I don't believe they grudgingly forsook the American Pledge over the Mexican pledge.
    I do agree with you on one point though Carpro, it is an abomination.

    I have no problem with kids learning or even reciting a foreign pledge simply for the sake of cultural studies provided they are taught that their true loyalty should be to the United States.
