Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible.

Are your kids starting their day at school by pledging their allegiance to the Lone Star State? You’re not alone if you don’t remember reciting the Texas flag pledge as a child. The legislature passed a law in 2003 requiring students in Texas public schools to recite the pledge to the U.S. flag, the Texas flag and to observe a one-minute period of silence for prayer, meditation or reflection each morning.

In the summer of 2007, a new version of the Texas pledge went into effect, including the wording “one state under God.” State law excuses students from reciting the pledges with a written request from a parent or guardian.
