As students returns to classrooms across the state, a new law is allowing schools to bring God back to Alabama public schools. And the Blount County school board is positioned to become the first system to take action.
“In God We Trust” has been the official motto of the United States since 1956 and back in March, the State Legislature passed HB228: The National Motto “In God We Trust” Act, which allows the national motto to be placed on government agencies and offices, in and on public buildings, including public school classrooms across the state.
Blount County Superintendent Rodney Green told AL.com a policy could be drafted within the next month.
But first they school board must consult an attorney.
“You would think that something that passes the Legislature won’t be challenged in the courtroom but we all know that it can and probably will,” said Green told AL.com.
Other schools across the Yellowhammer State are expected to follow.
