    In God We Trust to be displayed in public schools this fall

    In God We Trust to be displayed in public schools this fall

    Beginning in fall all Louisiana public schools will have to display In God We Trust and educate students about the origin of the national motto.


    The law was written by Baton Rouge Senator Regina Barrow, who says the motto must at minimum be displayed on a paper sheet. Its going to be at the discretion of each jurisdiction in terms of how they would like to post it, but at least it has to be posted at each jurisdiction. The Senator adds the legislation also allows teachers to freely choose to display the motto in their classroom.


    The law requires that the history of the motto be added to the mandatory curriculum in public schools. Barrow says its meant to teach students about the patriotic history of the USA.


    having that to me as a part of the basic education format would help to ensure that every child understands that this country was built on biblical principles.


    The information will be taught alongside instruction on proper flag etiquette.


    Opponents say the law imposes religious education on public school students and point out that the motto was only added to currency in 1957. Barrow disagrees with those arguments. Certainly, this may have been when it was actually placed on there, but the fundamentals of how this country was built were definitely on biblical principles, and I think that it is the one thing that we never need to forget in this country.


    The law cleared the Legislature in 2018 without a single dissenting vote.

    They are doing this in KY, it has to be in large letters in an open trafficked area.

    I like this part, too.


    "The information will be taught alongside instruction on proper flag etiquette."

    True American values.

    I bet the teachers unions will do everything they can to avoid the law.

    Some Federal judge will intervene and there will be no motto in the schools.

    Actually, that pesky First Amendment might get in the way. I'm not a Constitution attorney but I am a supporter of the Constitution.

    Personally, I've always trusted in my lucky socks.

    Always will be some "creative" people to dodge the rules, it seems though.
