The oath sounds very much like the National Guard oath I took. There is just NO REASON for kids to be required to “defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” This is why we have a military. Not to mention the whole business of being required to take an oath to graduate.

There are plenty of people legally here from other countries and some of them send their kids to school here while they are in the country.

A loyalty oath makes sense when applying for citizenship or even registering to vote, things like that, but in this context it’s ridiculous.
