SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- At South Portland High School, three students are facing criticism for giving students the option not to say the Pledge of Allegiance.
"Ever since I was in kindergarten, you just say the pledge and that is that. No one ever asks any question," said senior Morrigan Turner.
Across the country schools begin their morning reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Turner, Student Body President Lily SanGiovanni and fellow senior Gaby Ferrell discovered under Maine law it is optional if a student wants to recite the pledge. SanGiovanni began adding "if you'd like to" before she led the school's pledge.
