Las Cruces School District has decided to join two other New Mexico school districts to allow the pledge of allegiance to be recited in English and Spanish.

The Las Cruces School District has decided to join two other New Mexico school districts in allowing the Pledge of Allegiance to be spoken in both Spanish and English at school board meetings. Board Chairwoman Marias Flores brought up the request and they will start the bilingual pledge at the next public meeting. The Las Cruces Superintendent Greg Ewing spoke to the Las Cruces Sun-News saying that the goal for the school district is “inclusivity.” He also said that under the law, students are entitled to choose if they would like a part of their education in Spanish. He believes that this will be a good experience for the kids and allow all to participate. But Las Cruces isn’t the first school district to adopt a bilingual Pledge of Allegiance. There are districts in Albuquerque and Santa fe that allow the pledge to be spoken in both English and Spanish.
