Williamson school board debates proposal on terrorist-linked material
by Melanie Balakit
The Williamson County school board was divided Monday night over a proposal that would prohibit teachers from using supplementary material linked to terrorist organizations.
Some school board members said the policy revision was unnecessary and demeaning to teachers, while others said the revision was simply an extra precaution.
"I respect teachers as much as anyone in this room," said school board member Beth Burgos, who introduced the policy revision. "I adamantly disagree that this ties their hands or in any way disrespects them. It's the opposite."
