Should kids be required by state law to say the Pledge of Allegiance everyday in school?

Does your child recite the Pledge of Allegiance everyday in school?  

State Senator Roger Kahn, a Republican of Saginaw, has introduced a bill requiring students to do that and that requires each school to display a U.S. flag.

According to this Grand Rapids Press story, Michigan is one of only seven states not requiring the Pledge to be said everyday.

What's the benefit of requiring this?  What happens if a school disregards it?  Would it be better if the schools did it voluntarily?
