Chicago Teacher Fired for Telling Student to Stand for the Pledge of Allegiance
Chicago teacher: “I told him I stand to honor the sacrifice and bravery of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.”
A 15-year-old sophomore at Eisenhower High School in Chicago complained to his mother that he would not be able to drive with driving instructor Vince Ziebart if he continued to sit during the Pledge of Allegiance.
The student's mother contacted Eisenhower High School, claiming Ziebarth was infringing on her son’s First Amendment rights.
Ziebart expressed his thoughts to the Chicago Tribune stating, "I told him I stand to honor the sacrifice and bravery of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. It doesn't mean America is perfect, or that we agree with everything going on."
