Colo. principal takes heat for letting students recite Pledge of Allegiance in different languages

The principal of a Colorado high school has been criticized for allowing students in a multicultural club to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in different languages.

Students in the club asked their principal if they could translate and then recite the pledge in French, Spanish and Arabic to the student body.

Some parents were outraged by his decision and have called into the school.

Principal Tony Lopez said he reviewed the students' request carefully and approved it.

He said the high school is an inclusive place and that students are still saying the same pledge, but just communicating it in different ways.
