The Associated School Boards of South Dakota is supporting the daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance by students at all grade levels.
The issue became a hot topic in the state after a decision by the Sioux Falls School Board to not extend a daily pledge to high schools led to a barrage of criticism.
The Sioux Falls board reversed course and asked high school students to recite the pledge daily. The Rapid City School Board followed suit.
Associated School Boards of South Dakota member Duane Alm says the board overwhelmingly passed a resolution in late November in support of students at all grade levels reciting the pledge daily - to instill patriotism and to educate about "the principles the United States was founded upon."
