Trustee Clayton-Tarvin on WBUR Boston's NPR Station
Huntington Beach, CA-Yesterday, I was pleased to contribute to WBUR Boston’s NPR news on-air radio station On Point show. The discussion centered on “Why school boards are a nexus of America's culture wars.” For years, OVSD board meetings have been magnets for alt right fringe groups bent on disrupting public business for political gains. I’m happy to report that HBPD intervened this past Tuesday night to disperse the disrupters, who refused to wear masks inside the boardroom, a requirement in CA by CDPH and our local board of trustees. There were many K-2 students present in the boardroom and the disruption was unacceptable. Free speech is always welcome by the OVSD board, but lawful behavior is required. Listen in to hear my comments on WBUR’s show.
