Of course, the school board won't press charges. If anything, the teacher has a better case against the board. It's perfectly legal for the public, including teachers, to question government officials.

"We have certain rules: three minute speech, it has to be civilized, it can't get off target, it has to be related to the issue before the board. That's not what was happening last night.
"The marshal did his job. He went over there to settle it down. He couldn't settle it down. She's the one who made the choice to continue speaking," Fontana said. "He was taking her out. He wasn't arresting her. He was escorting her out, telling her don't come back tonight. It escalated out in the hall and she ended up getting arrested. "He did exactly what he was hired to do. He followed the procedures completely. She's the one who made the choices that got her arrested "

Not according to Herr Swamprat. He believes everyone should sieg heil their betters, and women should not, under any circumstances, be allowed to question men.

I heard that she asked why the Superintendent got a significant ($38,000) raise when no one else in the district ,janitors, teachers, clerical, or bus drivers had gotten one for years.

The board spokesperson was wrong. Her question was related to the issue under discussion. Looks like the board just didn't want to answer, wanted to give a raise to top administrators and leave teachers out.
