What if the Soviet union required its students to pledge allegiance to the state in order to graduate from school?

You know who ELSE required kids to pledge allegiance to the government?

Or Iran.

I’m a retired U.S. History and civics teacher. IMO, what these legislators need to be focusing on in this bill is having the students learn the duties and responsibilities of citizenship, the accurate history of our nation, what is in the Constitution, how it affects them, and how their knowledge of it can help make our country a better place for all of us. Also, imo, it doesn’t seem to do any good for them to take a pledge to uphold and defend a document that few of them know/understand. This legislation appears to me to be another attempt by some nutso AZ lawmaker to show how much he “loves” the Constitution while he and his party members demonstrate their disdain for anything having to do with the U.S. government, which is still governed by the Constitution, in the “Age of Obama.” This legislation is 100% pure bullsh*t parading as “patriotism.”

Precisely. The whole idea of loyalty oaths for the general population is way too authoritarian.

Its a trick! You graduate by refusing to take the oath, thus demonstrating your awareness that coercing an oath to God is a violation of your constitutional rights./

Your status as an American is determined by how many loyalty oaths one can sign. This smacks of Catch 22’s Glorious Loyalty Oath Crusade by which war aviators could only get their food and supplies by signing ever more loyalty oaths. There will always be insane ones among us.
