Don't Mess with Texas. They're Crazy.
KSAT.com - Education - New Texas Pledge Law To Cost School Districts : " Students in Texas public schools will be required to recite a pledge of allegiance to the Texas flag beginning in the 2003-2004 school year.

A new Texas law mandates that students recite the Texas pledge after reciting the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag. "

The law also requires that school districts display the Texas flag in every classroom. Of course, it doesn't allocate any extra money to cover the cost of getting the flags. For the San Antonio Northside district that's going to come to about $50,000.
