No Religion in Public Schools

A bill has passed its first legislative committee requiring PUBLIC schools to display the state motto, “In God We Trust.” Rep. Kim Daniels is the bill’s House sponsor.
“House Bill 839 requires each district school board to adopt rules that require all schools and all buildings used by the school to display in a conspicuous place, the state motto: ‘In God We Trust,’” she said, during Tuesday's House PreK-12 Innovation Subcommittee meeting. According to this bill, district school boards will have to pay for the cost of putting the motto on the wall. Why don’t they use the money instead to put a weapon detection system to protect kids from gun violence in schools?
Please sign this petition, email and call Governor and your Representatives and Senators and tell them that SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE ARE PROTECTED BY CONSTITUTION. Public education is being attacked on all levels: On Federal level, harmful education budget proposed by Betsy DeVos and the Trump administration takes away public school funding that supports science and math classes, after-school programs and mental health services.On State level, by inserting religion into public education.
