A South Carolina 9th grader is suing her school, alleging a teacher tried to force her to say the Pledge of Allegiance

A 9th grader from South Carolina is taking legal action against her school.

The student is alleging that a teacher attempted to compel her to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

The teacher reportedly used Google content to try and force the student to say the pledge.

The student's lawsuit claims that the teacher's actions violated her constitutional rights.

The Pledge of Allegiance has been a controversial topic in schools for decades.

Some people argue that forcing students to recite the pledge is a violation of their freedom of speech.

The Supreme Court has ruled that students cannot be compelled to say the pledge, but can be required to stand during it.

The lawsuit filed by the South Carolina student is the latest in a series of legal battles over the issue.

It remains to be seen how the court will rule in this particular case.
