Letter: Grade F for the Fargo School Board
Eide criticizes the Fargo School Board for its recent vote to no longer recite the Pledge of Allegiance at board meetings. That decision has since been reversed.
The Fargo School Board of Education voted to stop saying the Pledge of Allegiance at meetings . One board member says the pledge does not represent the diversity of the district. This is a tragic mistake demonstrating the poison of division gripping the country. It is the flag that unifies the country to one purpose, one set of values while representing the millions of immigrants who have made this country the greatest on earth. The board should be requiring the Pledge of Allegiance in every classroom.
Fools who divide the country spread the poison dividing us. "United we stand, divided we fall" is more evident now than ever before. I urge the voters to remove all the board members and the superintendent of schools.
