All Florida public schools to display ‘In God We Trust’ motto


Florida students returning to classes this week will see the state’s motto, “In God We Trust,” etched on plaques on campus.

A new statute, part of a sweeping education bill signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott in March, specifically states each school district is required to display the state motto “in all of the schools in the district and in each building used by the district school board.”

The motto must be displayed conspicuously on school grounds.
