High School Student Replaces USA With ISIS During Pledge
The Associated Press is reporting that a Connecticut high school student has been removed from school because he exchanged “ISIS” for the “United States of America” during the morning Pledge of Allegiance.
Though the 15-year-old boy wasn’t charged with a crime, the case was given to the Department of Homeland Security. A description of the child was not given but police are assuring that there is no threat to the community.
The school board said he was removed “out of an abundance of caution” and will be attending class in an annex building.
The AP states that the boy’s mother is not happy about her son being removed from school, calling it “an irrational decision.”
