From the ‘I Did Not Know This’ File: Washington state law requires public schools to spend at least 60 minutes in the week before Nov. 11 on “educational activities suitable to the observance of Veterans’ Day.”

RCW 28A.230.160 says, in part:

The responsibility for the preparation and presentation of the activities approximating at least sixty minutes total throughout the week shall be with the principal or head teacher of each school building and such program shall embrace topics tending to instill a loyalty and devotion to the institutions and laws of this state and nation.

So there you go.
