“In God We Trust” Is Required To Be Displayed By Red State In All Public Schools

Another state has approved legislation to move its classrooms away from woke ideology and fringe theories and toward a more God-centered environment. In recent years, teachers have taken increasing liberties in pushing their own narratives on kids through classroom décor, posters, and other means, much to the disgust of some parents.

In Louisiana, the state now requires that “In God We Trust” be displayed in all public classrooms. The law, HB 8, went into effect this week, just in time for the upcoming school year in the Bayou State. It is a welcome step in the right direction for public classrooms.

According to the new legislation, each public school classroom “shall display the national motto in each building it uses and classroom in each school under its jurisdiction.” The state has also set firm guidelines on where and how the motto is to be displayed in terms of size and composition.

Undoubtedly, if size guidelines were not established, many teachers or schools that did not feel obligated to follow the law would simply hide the national motto somewhere in each room in order to be technically compliant. That won’t be the case in Louisiana.

The law outlines the standards as follows: “The nature of the display shall be determined by each governing authority with a minimum requirement that the national motto shall be displayed on a poster or framed document that is at least eleven inches by fourteen inches. The motto shall be the central focus of the poster or framed document and shall be printed in a large, easily readable font.”
