TX Bill Requires Pledge of Allegiance in Charter Schools

Compelled patriotism. Nice.


State Rep. Marsha Farney, R-Georgetown, wants to make all students in Texas pledge allegiance to the American flag and the state flag.

If Farney's House Bill 773 becomes law, students in charter schools would be required to recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. flag and the Texas flag and observe a minute of silence — just like their peers in public schools.
