'Dumbest thing I've ever read': School sends parents Pledge of Allegiance waiver

(FOX NEWS)- A Florida man is upset over a Pledge of Allegiance waiver his niece brought home from school.

Micah Brienen took to Facebook to share an image of the "Pledge of Allegiance request" from Killearn Lakes Elementary School in Tallahassee, Florida.

It asked parents to sign and return the document if they wanted their child excused from reciting the pledge.

The "request" reads: "I understand my rights as a parent and I request that my child, noted above, be excused from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. This request includes standing and placing his/her right hand over his/her heart."
