    I hadn't realized they took flags out of class rooms. I liked living in Tucson 1977-85 but I'm really liking Arizona now... :D

    In EVERY classroom might be a bit much, but in this case I'll happily err on the side of overdoing it compared to the alternative.

    I remember saying the pledge of alliegance all the way through school, every day. And you can't say the pledge without a flag. This wasn't that long ago either, I graduated in 03. Maybe they do things differently in Arizona?

    Looking back I realize it was indoctrination and I'm not saying that stupid pledge ever again. But their heart is in the right place I guess.

    The Constitution with its amendments and the Declaration of Independence should be in every classroom.

    I think one flag per school is enough, since we only had one set of the National Colors per post. Some folks go a little overboard with Ol' Glory ;)

    Now if they'll only teach the kids to READ the Constitution and Bill of Rights, without left wing spin, we might be getting somewhere.

    Arizona sounds like a good place to raise a family. :-k

    I'm afraid that those documents are more of a history lesson if anything to most "teachers."

    The better search would be to find a teacher that could teach anything about the constitution or the history of the flag

    I wonder where the lines will be in 20 years. We might be safer here in Georgia than out West.

    Eh... I dunno. The invasion of Georgia seems to be progressing quite well.
