Chambers Wants to Overturn Policy That Allows Students Time for Pledge of Allegiance

chambers-no-pledgeA Nebraska lawmaker says he wants to overturn a State Board of Education policy that requires schools to allow students time to recite the Pledge of Allegiance daily.

The Legislature’s Education Committee will hear a bill by Sen. Ernie Chambers on Monday that reverses the board’s action requiring the pledge to be said in schools.

Last August, the board voted unanimously to approve the pledge policy. Gov. Dave Heineman also supported the policy after a similar legislative proposal failed to advance out of the Education Committee last year.

Chambers says he wants to get rid of the State Board of Education’s rule because the members disregarded the Legislature’s motion to shelf the bill.

    Ernie Sanders is a man who keeps getting re-elected so he is pleasing some people. I will give him credit for standing by his opinions. BTW he is right, if they broke the rules to put the policy in place, it should be repealed and done properly. We all like to complain when they force through something we do not like by breaking the rules, but when it is something we like we don’t. That my friends is hypocrisy. The rule of law is the rule of law, always. BTW as a Bible Christian I cannot pledge allegaince to anyone, but God and I do not pledge to a idol they cal the flag of the USA. Pledging allegiance to the flag is an afront to God.
