Steaks are thrown on the BBQ to celebrate the beginning of Texas History in Bobby's class and Hank is eager to share his knowledge of the Alamo. When Bobby leaves his new book in class, Hank pulls out his old, high school text to help him study; now Bobby is assured an "A"on the exam, or is he?
To Hank's dismay, Bobby returns from school after having failed his exam. Apparently, the Texas History he once studied is not what Bobby is learning in class. After reviewing Bobby's text, he discovers that the story of the Alamo has been replaced with the history of Mexican fashions, the planting of poinsettias and the tragedy of Selena. When the school board refuses to bring back the stories of the old, Texas past, Hank takes matters into his own hands. He teams up with, Bruce Tuggle, to re-enact the battle of the Alamo. Unfortunately, the two are divided by creative differences and Hank drops out of the project when Tuggle takes the real history of the Alamo, and turns it into a Hollywood freak show.
Outside of the Alamo, Peggy uses Flat Stanley as a way of teaching safety rules to children and goes a tad overboard in the attempt. Just like Hank, Bobby wants to pass down the real story of the Alamo to future students, so he makes note of the true story in his text book, but in doing so, fails the class, and secures himself a slot in summer school... Hank has never been more proud!
