(a) There is hereby created the "West Virginia Remembers Program." The objective of the West Virginia Remembers Program is to provide a forum wherein children in the public schools may learn about military service, patriotism and courage in the defense of our country from veterans who volunteer to share their experiences in the educational setting. The state board shall promulgate a rule for implementation of the program, including, but not limited to, the following:
(1) The program is not a part of the required curriculum;
(2) Presentation of the program in any classroom is the option of the classroom teacher; and
(3) A process is established for soliciting speakers from veterans groups and identifying available speakers.
