Kentucky Schools Working On ‘In God We Trust’ Displays
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Schools across Kentucky are working to fulfill a new state law requiring “In God We Trust” be displayed in a prominent place before classes begin.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports some school districts, including Jessamine and Franklin, have put up plaques while some, including Jefferson County Public Schools, plan to use artwork in common areas. Others, including Woodford County, are still working out details.
Lead sponsor Republican Rep. Brandon Reed has said the motto is ever-present in society and is prominently displayed in the Kentucky legislature.
The American Civil Liberties Union opposed the bill, saying the motto “has the appearance of endorsing religion.”
ACLU Communications Director Amber Duke said last week that parents or students who feel their rights have been violated should contact the organization.
