Fort Collins students do it in many languages, including Arabic, to express the diversity of their multicultural student body. TheÂ principalÂ is taking some heat for this, but he thinks it's fine since the pledge was translated by students. The principal said he checked it pretty carefully.
I'd be interested in how he did that, since I doubt if he or other faculty members were fluent in in Arabic, since it's not in the list of course offerings, as are French, Spanish, and German. Evidently the students in the multicultural club do the translating and reciting through the speaker system on Mondays. Monday appears to be the day when the Pledge is recited.
