Teacher Suspended for Forcing Student to Say Pledge Returns to Work

Not clear if she's back in the same classroom


A Florida fourth-grade teacher has returned to the classroom after a suspension for requiring a Jehovah's Witness to participate in the Pledge of Allegiance on 9/11.

A Hernando County School District report shows that Anne Daigle-McDonald was temporarily reassigned, suspended without pay and ordered to complete diversity training. District spokesman Roy Gordon said Thursday that McDonald has returned to teaching, but it wasn't immediately clear whether she returned to the same Tampa Bay-area classroom.
