i have a silly question:
does EVERY school in the US require this? or is the decision to have this said in the schools done on a school-by-school level, a school district level, a state level?
i can't see schools in DC where you have the children of diplomatic corps members in attendance requiring it. or do they have separate schools for them and for children of UN delegates in NYC?
because if i worked at the Canadian embassy in DC and sent my child to a school, i wouldn't want my child saying it.
we have no special school for diplomats' children here in Ottawa. they attend private or public schools as their parents' wish.
we don't have pledges, but i do recall singing "O Canada" every morning...
