ATLANTA — A local charter school is rolling back on its changes to when and how students will say the Pledge of Allegiance.
Leaders at Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School on Grant Street said students would no longer say the pledge in the morning meeting where students gather in a large group. But on Thursday, the school sent a press release saying it was a miscommunication.
The statement said:
In the original letter to parents, the school said, "Over the past couple of years, it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand or recite the pledge.”
In the Thursday release, the school added, "We are working together with the school administration to ensure we address concerns and feedback from our school family, while continuing to uphold and support the rights of every member of our school community."
