This teacher asked about raises at a school board meeting — and got arrested for it

A Louisiana middle school teacher was arrested after being ruled “out of order” for asking a question at a school board meeting.

A middle school teacher was arrested and put in city jail after questioning the salary of the district superintendent at a school board meeting Monday night.

Deyshia Hargrave, an English teacher at Rene Rost Middle School in Kaplan, Louisiana, asked the superintendent how he justified accepting a salary raise while teachers dealt with increased class sizes with no additional compensation. The question was asked during the public comments section of the meeting, while the board was discussing the superintendent’s new contract.

“Stop right now,” one of the board members interrupted. “That’s not germane to what’s on the agenda right now.”
