Besides sports events we have them in our classrooms where in most cases we are required to pledge allegiance to the darned thing every morning. Technically speaking that is illegal of course, but teachers still require us to do it out of 'respect'.

Several schools I have been to don't have the pledge at all, and all of them that did only required one to stand up, in my experience.

I had a teacher who regularly gave detentions for not saying the pledge. Not even "refuse to stand", but not saying it loud enough he could hear it.
