    You may as well train kids to raise an outstretched hand, palm down, and say "Sieg Heil".

    The gag is that it's really not that far off.

    That law is unconstitutional (if it really exists and isn't just school officials being stubbornly stupid). They can't have a law that requires you to do something like that for no other reason than to just show "respect" for a state oath/pledge. First court case, and it would be struck down in a heartbeat.

    Texas students prevail in dispute over standing for Pledge | First Amendment Center

    In fact, it has been being challenged by many students that schools in Texas cannot force students to stand during any pledge. As they should. There is no reason anyone should be forced to either recite or stand for a pledge, whether it be a national pledge or a state one. That should be their choice not law.
