School Board Meetings Mostly Peaceful

The Missouri School Boards’ Association has withdrawn participation from the National School Boards Association after the national organization wrote a controversial letter. The national group asked the U.S. Department of Justice for help preventing acts of “domestic terrorism” at rowdy school board meetings. Melissa Randol, executive director of the Missouri School Boards’ Association, says the national group’s interim leader did not ask for input about the letter from senior staff, the national board or the state organizations.



Randol says unlike what the national letter suggests, most school board meetings across the country do not include violent or threatening behavior.
