Pembroke school board will no longer censor critical remarks during meetings


PEMBROKE — Critical comments made during public school board meetings will no longer be censored - as long as those comments are relevant to an agenda item.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of New Hampshire became involved after the board threatened to have police kick out a Pembroke Academy parent for comments he made critical of administration's handling of an employee's arrest during a meeting in May, the Concord Monitor reported. A letter was sent to the board from the civil liberties group calling the incident a "textbook definition" of unconstitutional speech restriction.

The chairman of the Pembroke school board has assured the ACLU of NH that the board will no longer censor comments during meetings.
