Teacher told 6-year-old student to stand for Pledge, mother says he was stripped of rights

A Florida elementary school is under fire from one parent who says her son — who knelt during his class’s Pledge of Allegiance — was scolded and stripped of his First Amendment rights.

Eugenia McDowell’s son, a 6-year-old student at Wiregrass Elementary School in Pasco County, took a knee during his classroom’s Pledge of Allegiance on Monday, one day after hundreds of NFL players knelt or stood and linked arms following President Trump’s criticism of players who protest during “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
