Texas does have a disproportionately powerful sway on US politics, and more importantly, US education (due to how the textbook industry works). Your Girls State idea would be an amazing watch! (I still haven't seen this because as something of a political junkie, I think I can already predict how everything would play out. I'm not up for the disappointment I would likely experience while watching.)Boys State (2020)
Several of the kids comment on the strong Republican lean of the selected Texas kids but most of the real US electorate lean Democratic (since 2004), so the doc might have been even more instructive if they'd filmed in a state/program that was reflective of that national trend. I'm also curious to see how one of the companion "Girls State" programs would play out.
