The Carmel Clay Schools Board met at 8 am Monday morning for a meeting at which public comments were not allowed. By 8:10 am, the meeting was over.

Roughly 40 silenced citizens were greeted by Carmel police officers with metal detectors as they filed into the Carmel Clay Schools Educational Services Center Monday morning.

Carmel Clay Schools Superintendent, Dr. Michael Beresford justified the 8 a.m. start time for the meeting – a time when most parents are unable to attend due to work obligations –  because there were allegedly no significant policy items on the agenda.

Beresford told Fox 59 that the decision to ban public comments was made to discourage any further escalation of tensions in the public debate over mask mandates, Critical Race Theory (CRT), and library books that allegedly show sexually explicit content.

WIBC’s Rob Kendall says the decision was made because public officials in Carmel are cowards.
