Indiana mother sues school after her son, eight, was ‘forced’ to recite the Pledge of Allegiance

An angry mother is suing school teacher and principal after claiming her eight-year-old was forced to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

Jamie Porter said her son chose to sit quietly during the Pledge at Fuqua Elementary, Indiana, in March.

When asked why he was not taking part, the child said he was protesting the US government which he claimed was ‘racist, greedy and does not care about people’.
