The Pledge of Allegiance

Religion and politics have traditionally been highly debated  topics in our society. Recently, the Pledge of Allegiance has added to  this debate.

American citizens have generally recited the Pledge of Allegiance  at important ceremonies ranging from presidential inaugurations to the  beginning of the school day. The pledge has a great deal of sentimental  value to many Americans, but also creates a great deal of controversy  for others.

Review The History of Legal Challenges to the Pledge of Allegiance by reading the Supreme Court cases Elk Grove Unified School District v. Newdow and Jane Doe v. Acton-Boxborogh Regional School District, which highlights the debate.

Write a 2–3 page paper in which you:

  1. Summarize the salient points of the Supreme Court case Elk  Grove Unified School District v. Newdow and Jane Doe v. Acton-Boxborogh  Regional School District.
  2. Explain the decisions of the Supreme Court in these cases in brief.
  3. Discuss whether or not you think public schools should require students to recite the pledge. Why or why not?
  4. Provide three quality sources—the textbook may be used as one reference source.
