A recent survey reveals that two-thirds of American adults don’t even know the words to the Star-Spangled Banner; the world’s most recognizable national anthem. Well, despite the fact that patriotism is no longer considered politically correct in the United States, a group of music teachers are launching a national campaign to re-acquaint our students with the National Anthem.
The Miami Herald is reporting:
A recent survey by Harris Interactive shows that two out of three Americans can’t recite all the words to the Star-Spangled Banner, arguably the world’s most famous anthem.
Now a group of music educators has launched a campaign to re-teach the anthem throughout schools across the United States. Called the National Anthem Project, the nonprofit group plans to host contests for students and parents to see who can sing the anthem, written by Francis Scott Key. Singing begins at a pre-game event at today’s FedEx Orange Bowl followed by an inaugural ceremony on Wednesday.
Bravo for them! I can only hope that their efforts aren’t thwarted by the liberal educrats who have made concerted efforts to stop any form of patriotism; arguing that it may offend and even discriminate against some students who do not wish to participate.
