WHY DON'T ALL STARK CO SCHOOLS VALUE GOD? SCPR COMPARES STARK'S 16 OTHER SCHOOL DISTRICTS ' MISSION STATEMENTS TO LAKE: TODAY - FAIRLESS
A couple of Lake Township residents contacted the Freedom from Religion Foundation with complaints about a part of Lake Local School's Mission Statement. Lake is the home district of the SCPR and three Olson children graduated from Lake and the Mrs. served on the Lake Board of Education twice.
The first thing that occurred to yours truly is how the mission statements of Stark's other 16 school districts compare to Lake's.
Today we compare Lake"s controversial statement to that of the Fairless schools.
No mention of God in Fairless school's statement of beliefs.
So far the SCPR has examined the mission statements of Alliance, Canton, Canton Local and Fairless schools. None mention God in their mission statements.
Who has it right: Lake or Alliance, Canton, Canton Local and Fairless.
