I wonder why they didn't hire some Americans who have degrees to teach Spanish or who were bilingual teachers? They went out of country? Yikes!

How many English classes on foreign soil make the students recite The Pledge of Allegiance?

I took German in school, we learned all about Germany, the culture, songs, history. Never were we forced to pledge allegiance to Germany...

No pledge should be said at schools, including the American one

did you NOT read my post? Or NOT understand it.
I said I was against mandatory pledges. That this sort of thing can not be forced.
You´re just using my post to spout caca.
I am sorry, but you´re point is mute.
You are missing the point entirely and purposefully so that no one should be FORCED to pledge their allegiance to a COUNTRY. WHY was the half Mexican girl expected to comply? That assumption that she should somehow be MORE inclined to do so is racist, and unacceptable.
