A Las Vegas area mom had her microphone cut off during her public comments at a recent school board meeting when she tried to read from a graphic assignment she says her 15-year-old child was given in class.
Video from the Clark County School Board meeting shows the woman being silenced and chastised after she read from a paper she claims her high school-aged daughter was asked to memorize and “act out” in front of the class, after the school board chairwoman claimed the language was profane and too graphic for a public meeting.
“I’m going to read you an assignment given to my 15-year-old daughter at a local high school,” the mom began in the video.
“This will be horrifying for me to read to you, but that will give you perspective on how she must have felt when her teacher required her to memorize this and to act it out in front of her entire class," she added.
“’I don’t love you. It’s not you, it’s just, I don’t like your d*** - or any d*** in that case. I cheated, Joe,’” the woman began, quoting from the alleged assignment she held in her hand.
“Forgive me, we’re not using profanity,” the chairwoman interrupted, as the mom’s microphone momentarily went silent.
“The teacher required my daughter to read this pornographic material,” the mother explained.
“Please don’t engage with the audience,” the board member then scolded, as other voices chimed in.
“I ask you simply – this is a public meeting. I ask for decorum,” the chairwoman said.
“If you don’t want me to read it to you, what was it like for my 15-year-old daughter to have to memorize pornographic material,” the mother asked, before her microphone was once again cut off.
