Tavares, Fla. (AP) -- After reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and hearing
student musicians play "It's a Grand Old Flag," the county School Board
voted to require schools to teach that American culture is superior to
all others. School board chairwoman Pat Hart wrote the policy, adopted
3-2 on Tuesday. "It is the neglecting and forgetting of these things
that have led us to our present state," Hart said. "Do we want to
undermine our love of country and sovereignty, or perpetuate the great
liberties that we have?" Opponents found the word "superior" bothersome.
