It’s the pledge of allegiance that we all know, but in a language few American students can speak.

A multi-cultural student club at a Colorado high school decided to recite the pledge in other languages.

They went to the principal and asked for his approval first. After careful review, he agreed.

First, members read the pledge in French, then Spanish, and on Monday — Arabic.

Angry parents are now questioning the principal’s decision.

The principal said when they pledge allegiance, they’re still doing it to the United States.  They’re just using another language as their vehicle and he sees no problem with that!
