EDMOND, OK (NBC) - An Oklahoma mother is fuming over a mandatory assignment given to her son.

Melissa Taggart is now taking her fight to Edmond, OK Public Schools after her son was threatened with a zero because he wouldn't complete an assignment that would require him to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish.

"My husband and I are appalled by it. We don't believe in it and I do not want my child doing it," Taggart said. "I just feel that it's wrong, that he'll have to say the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States of America in Spanish. That's not how it should be taught. That has nothing to do with the Spanish language."

Officials with Edmond Public Schools said that Melissa's son was going to receive a zero for the project. A few hours later, they changed their minds and are now offering him another assignment.

"There are poems, lyrics, and great writers that she could have chosen that emphasize the Spanish culture ... Why the Pledge of Allegiance," Taggart asked.

I wonder if this was a Spanish language class. If so the parents are off base here. If not then the teacher is pushing his or her luck.

That's the whole scam in this country is, we don't have an official language.

I thought the Pledge was stopped being recited in schools anyway. If so then there should be outrage if it is being done in Spanish regardless of which class it is being done in anyway. If it is not allowed in English it should not be allowed in Spanish.
