Illinois state law requires that "The Pledge of Allegiance shall be recited each school day by pupils in elementary and secondary educational institutions supported or maintained in whole or in part by public funds."

The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the statute did not violate the students' rights, so long as students were free not to participate in the recitation of the Pledge.
