Retired Harvard Professor Ruth Wisse makes the case that Harvard "needs to have its patriotic bona fides buffed."
On a related note, what about starting even earlier?
[T]he flag salute and the pledge of allegiance [in school] is a ceremony clearly designed to inculcate patriotism and to instill a recognition of the blessings conferred by orderly government under the Constitutions of the State and nation. The study of those instruments is a proper subject for instruction in the public schools. It is plain that the Republic and the State undertake to establish liberty and to provide justice for all within their borders in accordance with standing laws. The flag is a symbol of those aims of government. It is important for all who attend the public schools to know these facts and to appreciate these advantages. An understanding of these matters enables citizens to comprehend and to assert their rights and to seek and obtain their safety and happiness.
