Religion in Schools?

After much debate, a vote has been made in the Bakersfield school district to display the motto "In God We Trust" on the walls of classrooms, libraries, and offices. Opponents saw this as the beginning of an endeavor to infuse religion into the schools. Others say that this in no way imposes upon people that they must believe in God.

So why is it such a big debate? I believe it is because people are afraid that there will be no limitations as to how far people on the school boards will go when making these additions to school properties. Advocates just see is as merely as something that has an "educational and historical context."
