A Florida man couldn't believe it when his niece brought home a waiver asking parents or guardians if they'd like their kids from being exempt from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at school.
The waiver read, “I understand my rights as a parent and I request that my child, noted above, be excused from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. This request includes standing and placing his/her right hand over his/her heart.”
Micah Brienen shared the waiver on Facebook and commented “My niece brought this home from school today…What is happening to our country?!?”
Brienen’s sister-in-law returned the form with her daughter with the best response of all.
“This is the dumbest thing I have ever read and I am so ashamed of this,” she wrote.
Brienen has since followed up on the issue and has asked his friends to contact the school’s superintendent and remind him that he is up for reelection.
