God could return to Alabama schools, in form of trust motto

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – As Alabama students adjust to a new school year, some public schools are considering putting up “In God We Trust” displays.

State lawmakers in February approved legislation allowing such displays on public property.

Al.com reports that the motto could soon become more common in Alabama schools. Legal challenges are expected to follow.

The news site reports that Blount County’s school board is poised to become one of the first systems to take action. Blount County Superintendent Rodney Green says a policy on the issue could be drafted within the next month.

Observers view Blount County as a testing ground for the upcoming legal battles.
