WHY DON'T ALL STARK CO SCHOOLS VALUE GOD? SCPR COMPARES STARK'S 16 OTHER SCHOOL DISTRICTS ' MISSION STATEMENTS TO LAKE: TODAY - MASSILLON
This leaves out Alliance, Canton City, Canton Local, Fairless, Jackson, Marlington and Massillon. Of 9 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 78% ignore God in their misson/values/vision statements. 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.
