The Michigan Senate passed legislation requiring every state public school classroom to have a U.S. flag and schools provide an opportunity for students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

It's hard to believe that some people oppose this bill, but there are.

The Michigan House has already approved both the flag and the pledge bills so now they are waiting on approval from Governor Snyder.

Growing up I always remember saying the pledge until high school for some reason.  Most schools already do the pledge on a regular basis, but this bill would require that they are given the opportunity without being compelled to do it.

Some people think that schools that are in financial trouble might not be able to afford the flags, and that this may take away from local control.

I personally think that's BS, I'm sure each classroom can come up with an extra $15 dollars to get a quality flag in their room.
