Thoughts on the debate of pledge of allegiance being removed from schools because it mentions god?

There's been a lot of debate lately about ceasing the rehearsal of the American pledge of allegiance from schools. Every morning students are expected to rise, put their right hand over their heart and recite the pledge. However, many students refuse to do so because the words "one nation, under god" go against their religion, and there's been discussion about removing the pledge from schools, as religion should be kept out of public schools. What do you all think about this?
