Sixth-Grader Claims Teacher Dragged Him For Sitting During Pledge

Student refuses Pledge of Allegiance alleges teacher yanked him from chair

A MI teacher is on leave after an 11-year-old boy said he was physically forced out of his chair during the Pledge of Allegiance.

It happened last Thursday at East Middle School. The student felt his rights were violated when his teacher, who has yet to be named, tried to force him to stand for the pledge on September 7.

A statement from the superintendent of the Farmington Hills Public School District said the teacher who assaulted the sixth grader has been placed on administrative leave.

He said students have the right to skip the Pledge of Allegiance.

A MI teacher was placed on administrative leave after she allegedly assaulted a student for refusing to stand for the pledge of allegiance.

"I'm going to say we're quite disappointed", Brian Chaney said at a board of education meeting this week. Chaney's father said his son will likely begin studying in another district.

We think the action of the local authorities in compelling the flag salute and pledge transcends constitutional limitations on their power, and invades the sphere of intellect and spirit which it is the goal of the First Amendment to our Constitution to reserve from all official control. She also told him he would need a special note to be allowed to sit. He said students have the right to skip the Pledge of Allegiance.

At this time, Chaney and his parents stated they do not know if he will return back to that school.

According to the local affiliate, the school has not released the name of the teacher placed on administrative leave.

'I'm looking at my son as a hero.

Stone was asked what he would say to those who are critical of people who don't stand during the pledge.

"It's his choice to sit", Chaney said. "I have to make a stance for this", Chaney said. Brian Chaney praised his son's ability to walk to his "own beat".

"I would love to be able to talk to them and get their side and explain my side so maybe we could come to an understanding", Stevens said. He said people have asked him in the past about hsi decision not to stand but has never had an issue - until now.
