Student leaders at California's Orange Coast College banned the Pledge of Allegiance at their meetings, saying they see no reason to publicly swear loyalty to God and the U.S. government.
The ban does not apply to other student groups or campus meetings. I think the school has the right approach here. If the student leaders' personal belief is that they don't want to say the Pledge of Allegiance, the school certainly shouldn't insist that they do. It is troubling that the student leaders don't want to express loyalty to their nation.
