Fargo School Board Votes 7-2 to No Longer Recite the Pledge of Allegiance

Valley News Live, August 10, 2022

The wrestling match over the Pledge of Allegiance at Fargo School Board meetings has reached a resolution. In a 7-2 vote on Tuesday, the school board moved to not recite the pledge before their meetings.


Board Vice President Seth Holden then requested that the issue be discussed again at the board meeting on August 9, saying he wanted to rescind the March decision after hearing comments from board members and the public. Holden says the Pledge of Allegiance doesn’t align with the school district’s diversity, equity and inclusion values.
