A Fort Collins principal stands by his decision to allow students from a multicultural group to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic on the school's intercom.

"We do say the Pledge of Allegiance on Mondays at Rocky Mountain High School," principal Tom Lopez said.

Students have always said it in English. This year, a group with about 30 students approached Lopez with a request to translate and recite the pledge in other languages.

"They had to go through me for approval, and I reviewed it pretty carefully," Lopez said. Facebook Fark Furl
