It doesn't take but a few minutes on social media to find myths and misinformation about public schools. The one that I see the MOST has to do with students reciting the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States Flag.
Here is the truth. EVERY DAY IN EVERY TEXAS PUBLIC SCHOOL students face the flag, place their hands over their hearts, and recite the pledge to the United States flag. This is followed by the pledge to the Texas flag. It's the law in Texas, and forty-six other states have similar laws.
That is GOOD NEWS to many people!
If you see a post asking that schools be required to say the pledge like in the "good old days" you will now understand that the post is false and should not be shared.
