Parents need to remember they pay the bills for the schools and the salaries of teachers and principles. If this is not the time to remember, THEY answer to you, the parents, when will that time come? When your children are miniature Marxist robots? When they graduate unable to read but can recite Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto? It's Marxist/Socialist/PC anti-American types like the school personnel who have forgotten who owns the school system and for whom are their services purchased? It is time to get the Elisabeth Meinecke types out of the lives of our children. They don't belong in any position of indoctrination. This is America, she and any foreigner that finds "GOD BLESS the USA" offensive should voluntarily give up citizenship in A

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...
