WHY DOESN'T EVERY STARK COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT VALUE GOD? THE SCPR COMPARING STARK'S 17 SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND THEIR MISSION STATEMENTS: TODAY - MINERVA
This leaves out Alliance, Canton City, Canton Local, Fairless, Jackson, Marlington, Massillon and Minerva (the home of the Lions).
Of 10 school districts in Stark County surveyed (done by scrutinizing their websites or by response from the district's administration) by the SCPR so far in this series, out of a controversy generated by 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; 8 make no reference to God; direct or indirect.
A whopping 80% ignore God in their misson/values/vision statements. Only Lake and Louisville (sort of) stand for God in their public statements.
