(Sun-Sentinel) Palm Beach County teachers who were offended by an “In God We Trust” sign displayed in front offices prompted the school district on Wednesday to come up with a new way to comply with a recently approved state law.

The School Board agreed to use the state seal, which also says “In God We Trust,” in place of Palm Beach County’s homemade design, which posted the words in bold capital letters. The seal is more subtle and can’t be criticized, board members said.

“Who can be offended by the state seal?” asked board member Karen Brill, who came up with the idea. “It’s one of those stories where employees see something that rubs them the wrong way.”
