A new law in Texas allows public schools to display “In God We Trust” signs if they are donated or purchased from private donors.
Schools have begun hanging the signs. The Carrol Independent School District in the northern Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is placing the signs in public areas.
Patriot Mobile, a Christian conservative wireless provider, provided the signs.
Other schools in the Houston area and Austin also hanged similar signs.
The signs must also display the U.S. flag, the Texas flag, and the national motto.
As the author of the In God We Trust Act, I am encouraged to see groups like @PatriotMobile coming forward to donate these framed prints to remind future generations of Texans of our national motto.https://t.co/AE04SBuLr7#InGodWeTrust #txlege

“I feel like they don’t have a choice right now to put them up,” Kushwaha said. “ But hopefully this will spark larger conversations about having more freedom of expression, so if they are allowed to put up signs like this there should be no reasons that other students or people can’t put up signs that have different messaging.”
