A decision announced yesterday by an Atlanta charter school to no longer recite the Pledge of Allegiance during its regular morning routine left many Georgia lawmakers and leaders upset.

Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School on Grant Street announced the change Tuesday in a statement from elementary campus president Lara Zelski. In the statement, Zelski went on to say that teachers and the K-5 leadership team will be working with students “to create a school pledge that we can say together at morning meeting,” adding that students will be “given the opportunity to say the pledge at another point during the school day within their classroom.”

This decision did not sit well with many state leaders.
