Pledge of Allegiance in Schools I. Introduction a. “When I ask if they would hold the same opinion if the Pledge said "one Nation under white people," they immediately say no… So why is it okay to do this to atheists and not to African-Americans?” (Michael Newdow) b. The pledge of allegiance should not include any reference to a higher authority. c. This speech will discuss why American’s should have freedom from religion, as well as the founding father’s views on the pledge and why the pledge was changed from its original version. d. First, we will discuss why the pledge of allegiance infringes the rights of students who are required to say or listen to it every day in class. II. Forcing children to recite or listen to the words in the Pledge of Allegiance everyday in school infringes their rights outlined in the first amendment to the Constitution. a. The Constitution of the USA states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” (US Government Archives) b. The Constitution states freedom from religion. Although not directly stated, there is an interpretation of freedom OF religion as well freedom FROM religion.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
