Governor proposes to revive tradition before class starts

Governor Lemanu P. S. Mauga has proposed that the Department of Education revive tradition before class starts, from raising flags, reciting the pledge of allegiance, and singing the national anthems of America and American Samoa.


This was outlined in a general memorandum issued last week. Governor Lemanu P. S. Mauga says that pride in our nation and ourselves goes hand in hand.


These lessons should be learned very early at home and school.


A strong sense of pride fosters compassion towards one another and creates upstanding members of society who will have a full appreciation of the freedoms we hold dear.


The governor proposed that the Department of Education initiate a daily standard practice of assembling students to witness the raising of the flags, reciting the pledge of allegiance, and singing the national anthems of both the US and American Samoa.


The governor further noted that deferring to reciting the pledge of allegiance in the classrooms in inclement weather is acceptable.
