US school sorry for Arabic pledge - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/31989874

A school in New York state has apologised after receiving complaints because a student recited the US Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic.

The school’s foreign language department arranged for the pledge to be read in a different language each day for a week.

Complaints were received from people who lost family in Afghanistan and from Jewish parents, an official said.

Neither the US nor New York state has an official language.

The school district superintendant, Joan Carbone, told the Times Herald-Record newspaper that the Arabic pledge had “divided the school in half” and that she had received numerous complaints.

A statement from the district apologised “to any students, staff or community members who found this activity disrespectful” and said the reading was intended to “promote the fact that those who speak a language other than English still pledge to salute this great country”.

An Arabic-speaking student read the pledge during morning announcements at Pine Bush High School in Pine Bush, New York, on Wednesday.

Officials said the school’s foreign language department organised for different pledge translations to be read in celebration of National Foreign Language Week.

English only from now on

Many students reportedly shouted their disapproval during the recitation, and later complained on social media.

Later in the afternoon, the school’s principal made a school-wide announcement to explain why the pledge was read in Arabic and to apologise to those who took offence.

Ms Carbone said the pledge would only be read in English in the future.

The school’s student leader, Andrew Zink, who is in charge of the morning announcements, told US media that he knew the reading would attract controversy.

He permitted it to go forward, because he believed it was “the right thing to do”.

“What makes you American is not the language you speak, but the ideas you believe in,” he said.

Sadyia Khalique, a spokeswoman for the New York chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations, said: “All Americans who value our nation’s history of religious and ethnic diversity should be concerned” by the reaction and subsequent apology.

Arabic is not widely spoken in Afghanistan, where the major languages are Dari and Pashto.

bbc doesn’t have time for this shit

My school has three kinds of people

for real, get arrested, do drugs, sell drugs, beat up cops thugs

Random groups of people who try too hard to prove they’re either totally awesome and popular or totally not popular and fight the system by writing the anarchy symbol on desks

and then we have the nerdy little burn out kids who honestly still have no idea why they show up.

Guess who I am?

Florida girl graduates college and high school a week apart

Last week, just days before her high school graduation, 16-year-old Grace Bush collected a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from a south Florida university, fulfilling her proud parents’ cost-saving plan on tuition.

Bush will graduate from high school this Friday, but is already planning on heading back to Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in Boca Raton for a master’s degree in public administration before seeking a law degree.

Home-schooled until 13 with her eight siblings, Grace began reading around the age of 2, her mother Gisla Bush said.
