Public school students in South Dakota will notice something different on their first day back to school — the national motto, “In God We Trust,” prominently inscribed on walls in stencil or paint.
A new state law that took effect this month requires the message to be displayed in an area where students are “most likely” to see it, such as a cafeteria or entryway.
Gov. Kristi Noem signed the requirement into law in March. It says the motto must be at least 12-by-12 inches in size and easily legible. It can take the form of a mounted plaque, student artwork or other appropriate forms determined by the school principal.
Lawmakers who proposed the law believe the quote will inspire patriotism, according to the Associated Press.
