HB 1100 would require principals and teachers in each public elementary and secondary school of each school district to display the Ten Commandments in each classroom.

The bill would require teachers to have the Ten Commandments recited aloud at the beginning of the first hour of class each day that school is in session.  Any student or teacher who objects to reciting the Ten Commandments must be excused from participating without penalty.

The bill would also require a brief period of quiet reflection at the opening of school upon every school day.
