Grove City School Board Tables Free Speech Restriction Policy

The Grove City School Board chose to table a controversial new policy that would drastically limit the free speech rights of citizens who attend Board meetings.

During the Educational Services Committee, chairwoman Sue Schepp announced that the policy would be tabled. President Jane Rath noted that it should be removed from the agenda for the regular board meeting.

This move is partially surprising, as the school board typically steamrolls over the will of the citizenry. One can only hope that they are feeling some pressure from the public and they will kill the policy.
