Amy, I will stand along side you any day, I love our America & am so proud to be an American. This Teacher should not be teaching kids of any age, Parents have the God given right to teach their kid about America & God, They can make up their own mind when they are grown up. But till then we have to kick out Teacher like this one out,

Depending on who you ask, the song 'God Bless the USA' by Lee Greenwood has been banned from one school's graduation because 1)it would offend other cultures or 2)the lyrics are too adult for the kids.

The New York Post says this:

Greta Hawkins, principal of PS 90, the Edna Cohen School, won’t allow kindergartners to belt out the beloved Lee Greenwood ballad, also known as “Proud to be an American,” at their moving-up ceremony.

Five classes spent months learning the patriotic song, which skyrocketed in popularity after the 9/11 attacks and the 2003 invasion...
