A South Carolina elementary school has apologized after a fourth-grade teacher omitted the words “under God” from a copy of the Pledge of Allegiance she handed out to students.

Jessica Andrews, whose daughter attends Chukker Creek Elementary School in Aiken, said she was shocked when her daughter showed her a copy of the pledge without any mention of God.

“We are so quick to change our religion to accommodate everyone else,” she told Fox News’ Todd Starnes. “It’s outrageous, to be honest. It seems like the government is doing everything they can to take God out of everything.”

The school’s principal, Amy Gregory, said Tuesday that the omission was not meant as some sort of political statement, and that the teacher simply made a copy-and-pasting error.

“This was a single mistake by a very embarrassed and apologetic teacher,” she said in a statement to Fox News.
