UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio (WCMH) – An audience of nearly 200 attended Tuesday’s Upper Arlington City School Board’s meeting, the board’s first public meeting since a video recorded in secret captured a district administrator talk about critical race theory.

“You are all here because you care deeply about our schools, our students, and our community,” said board president Lori Trent, opening the meeting. “We are friends, neighbors, and all community members, which make Upper Arlington the incredible place that it is.”

All told, the public comment section of the meeting, with nearly all commentators addressing the video and its content, lasted more than two and 1/2 hours.

The first speaker chastised the board for not focusing on academics.

“I do not want anyone’s religion or politics in our schools,” the woman said. “I want to make things easier for our teachers by not burdening them with all the extra stuff that is not a part of public education or state standards.”
