Do private schools in USA say the Pledge of Allegiance?

I know public schools were designed to indoctorate students and make you be a good loyal drone, but do private schools do this? They're not under any government regulation.

The Pledge of Allegiance is showing respect for our country. Every school in America does it, although not all teachers require you to stand up.

My kids go to private school and they do say the Pledge, but I can't speak for any other school.

Wow the answers so far...shocking. I also meant to ask if you all liked it better than public schools and in what ways?

My kids have never been to "public skool" so they wouldn't know if they like it better than private.

Yes though neither school can force you to do it. A girl at my school never did the pledge. She would stand up to show respect but never actually said the pledge.

Yes, they do Pledge Alegiance to the flag that is recognized around the world. If you feel that that makes you a drone then don't say the words. You have the freedom to choose not to. No one has the right to compel you to do so. And by the way, If it weren't for that flag that you somehow feel a need to disparage you would not have the right to free speech, or to choose your religion or not, you wouldn't have a choice of whether you could go to school or not.The State would make you and everyone your age take an IQ exam and if you didn't meet the States standards you would be consigned to manual labor not of your choosing but at what ever the State determined you were qualified for. Someone has been remiss in insuring your understanding of what this Nation was founded on.We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
You may want to find out what other rights you have so I've included a link to The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution with it's many amendments. These rights have been preserved for you and your children and grandchildren by those whom have, for the last 236 years, pledged Alegiance to our flag and have born the burden of war against tyrants that would love to take those rights away from you and others in other countries. We do not go to war to conquer territory. We go to war to deter attacks on you and this country or allied countries that seek to be left alone and need help in repulsing larger stronger belligerents that seek to relieve them of their human rights.1911Germany WW-1 & 1940's Germany, Japan, and Italy.WW-2. 1950-53 N.Korea. 1962-1975 North Vietnam. Iraq- Kuwait Desert Storm and we don't control or own any of it and we covered all the expenses just like the tsunami that hit Japan and the one that hit Indonesia where 225 thousand or more people died. All free of charge. Haiti earth quake food and medical supplies. Billions in food each year and in medical support for Africa over the last 50 years. Rebuilt the economies of Germany, France, Japan, Italy, and England through lend lease and trade. The reason Japan, Canada, France, and Germany can afford the social programs they have is because we protect them and the sea lanes they depend on for free commerce. Those are just a few of the compelling reasons that people who enjoy freedom and know that"freedom is not free" Pledge Alegiance to the flag that represents the country's Constitution that guarantees that freedom!
