WHY DOESN'T EVERY STARK COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT VALUE GOD? THE SCPR COMPARING STARK'S 17 SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND THEIR MISSION STATEMENTS: TODAY MARLINGTON
This leaves out Alliance, Canton City, Canton Local, Fairless, Jackson and Marlington. Of eight of the 17 school districts in Stark County covered by the SCPR so far out of a controversy generated by the a few Lake residents (Lake is the SCPR's home area) in a complaint to the Freedom from Religion Foundation over Lake's use of God in its mission statement, 6 make no reference to God.
A whopping 75% ignore God. Only Lake and Louisville (sort of) stand for God in their public statements.
While this blog is published on both the Stark County Political Report and the Stark Education Report, the best place to keep track of which school districts do or do not have any kind of reference to God in their mission statements is at the Stark Education Report.
