State Law Requiring ‘In God We Trust’ Displayed At All Public Schools Goes Into Effect

Louisiana has recently enacted a new legislation, HB 8, that imposes a requirement on public schools to prominently display the national motto of the United States, “In God We Trust,” in all classrooms across their premises. This law took effect on Tuesday and mandates each public school system to ensure the presence of the national motto in every building and classroom under their jurisdiction.

The Louisiana government has provided additional guidelines for the display of the motto, including specifications related to size and composition. The law outlines that each governing authority has the flexibility to determine the nature of the display. However, it sets a minimum requirement that the national motto must be showcased on a poster or framed document measuring at least eleven inches by fourteen inches. Additionally, the motto should be the central focus of the poster or document, presented in a large, easily readable font.

It’s important to note that the law does not force schools to allocate funds for the displays. Instead, it allows for the possibility of funds or signage to be donated, making it more of a voluntary measure.

Governor John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, signed this bill in June, marking a growing trend within the conservative movement across the nation to center the national motto in civic life. Other states such as Florida, Arkansas, South Dakota, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Texas have also recently passed similar laws, mandating the display of “In God We Trust” in public facilities.

The phrase “In God We Trust” is most famously seen on all U.S. currency, reflecting its long-standing spiritual connotation. However, over the decades, some anti-religious activists have taken legal action, arguing that the official use of the motto by the U.S. government infringes upon the rights of citizens with different beliefs.
