Louisiana Republican Governor Jeff Landry has signed a bill requiring the Ten Commandments to be displayed in every public school classroom in the state. Former President Donald Trump has also expressed support for the idea, stating that the display will "help bring common sense back to our classrooms" and spark the "revival of religion" in the United States. Landry emphasized the importance of starting with the original law giver, Moses, and that the Ten Commandments' display in schools will help bring common sense back to classrooms.

The Ten Commandments must be exhibited with a context statement outlining their significance in American public education, as part of the new Louisiana legislation. The New England Primer, the first American textbook to be published around the year 1688, contained more than forty questions about the Ten Commandments and was used in public schools throughout the United States for more than 150 years to teach Americans to read.

The American Civil Liberties Union denounced the Louisiana bill as "unconstitutional" and threatened to sue the Republican-run state. However, after signing the measure into law, Landry said he was prepared to face legal action. Republican state representative Dodie Horton emphasized the importance of putting the Ten Commandments back in a prominent position in public school classrooms to counter the "junk" that students are being taught today.
