My name is Jonathan Saphire and I was a former tutor for the inner-city schools of Boston, Massachusetts. One day, a young child asked me what the “Pledge of Allegiance” meant. He recited it every morning in class, but had no idea what he was saying. I asked some of the other kids in his class and they said the same. After speaking with several more children in other classes, I realized that virtually all of them had no idea what the “Pledge of Allegiance” meant. It was as if they were reciting something in a foreign language; so I decided I was going to explain it one word at a time. The children’s response to my method of explaining what the “Pledge of Allegiance” meant was astounding!
Our children deserve to fully understand the true message of something they recite every morning; therefore, my mission is to get my workbook into the public schools’ curriculum and other leading organizations that use the “Pledge of Allegiance”.
This workbook offers a very unique interactive learning experience by combining a clear and concise explanation of the “Pledge of Allegiance” along with lessons on ethics, politics, sociology, geography and life in a simple manner anyone can readily understand.
