PEORIA, IL -- Only two long time activists presented comments at the Peoria District 150 School Board's July 18 meeting.
Terry Knapp commented on a successful basketball event, then urged the board to be proactive to stop any anti-police chanting and activities from demonstrators.
In light of the recent shooting of police, "it's important not to allow this in the school district. We have to be pro-active and stop it," he said.
Here is a recording of the comments.
Sevino Sierra commented on a poster in the board room which shows only black and white children. Other ethnic groups also should be depicted, he said. In addition students should be taught about civil rights, he said.
