Suit: Teen Booted From School for Not Standing During Pledge

Houston student kicked out of her high school for sitting during Pledge of Allegiance
India Landry, a 17-year-old high school student at Windfern High School, has been practicing her right to free speech by protesting the Pledge of Allegiance for quite some time now.
The lawsuit against the Cypress Fairbanks ISD school district states that students can not be forced to stand for the Pledge, and that the school had no right to kick out India.
The lawsuit says Landry, who'd been sitting for the pledge in class, was expelled Monday after doing that in the principal's office.
After a television station ran the story, Landry said the administration changed its decision, allowing India to return to school on Monday with a signed note from her mother saying it was OK for her to remain seated during the pledge.
Nevertheless, she plans on continuing her protest: "I don't think the flag is for what it says it's for, liberty and justice and ... all that", said India.
The public school district did not comment on what had actually happened in the classroom, but said in a statement: 'A student will not be removed from campus for refusing to stand for the Pledge. "India returned to Windfern at 10:30 a.m.", the lawsuit states.
'They said you are kicked out of here, ' she told the newspaper.

"I said I wouldn't, and they said you are kicked out of here", said India.
The school district stated it will be handling the matter internally.
"I wouldn't stand because it goes against everything I believe in", India said. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way.
Vice President Pence, the former governor of IN, attended an Indianapolis Colts game (against Kaepernick's former team, the 49ers).
President Trump stirred up the controversy last month when he said at a rally in Alabama that NFL owners should fire players for kneeling during the national anthem, advising the owners to say, "Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he's fired". Critics of the protests say Americans should respect their nation's flag and that not doing so is particularly disrespectful to veterans.
Trump also said if fans leave the stadium when players kneel during the national anthem, "I guarantee things will stop".
