"In God We Trust" is stenciled in a wall at South Park Elementary in Rapid City, South Dakota in this July 23, 2019 photo. When students return to public schools across South Dakota this fall there should be a new message displayed in a common area, a cafeteria, entryway or other prominent location. A new state law that took effect this month requires all public schools in the state's 149 districts to paint, stencil or otherwise display the national motto "In God We Trust." The South Dakota lawmakers who proposed the law said the requirement was meant to inspire patriotism in the state's public schools.(Adam Fondren/Rapid City Journal via AP)
