Oklahoma Schools to Require Pledge of Allegiance
Governor Mary Fallin has signed a bill into law, requiring schools to hold a weekly pledge of allegiance.
State Representative John Bennett, the House author of the bill, said the pledge serves as a reminder to young people that patriotism honors those who have fought and sacrificed on behalf of the country.
The measure will not force students to recite the pledge. They will be able to opt out of participating if they choose to.
