A new law in Tennessee requires the motto “In God We Trust” to be prominently displayed in every public school in the state. . .
Representative Susan Lynn sponsored this bill and recently said this:
“Our national motto is on our money. It’s on our license plates. It’s part of our national anthem. Our national motto and founding documents are the cornerstone of freedom, and we should teach our children about these things.”
Concerning TN license plates, “In God We Trust” was added as an optional addition to standard Tennessee plates after state leaders passed a bill in May 2017.
Many people on social media fully support the idea of displaying the motto in schools. That support carries over to South Knoxville Elementary where they have a sign up and the principal has plans to put up a bigger, more permanent display soon.
