Large crowds at board meetings often indicate that there is a hot issue with the parents, community, or staff.  Handling these situations calmly and correctly is critically important.  Things can get out of hand quickly when a citizen challenges the board or a school board member’s actions contribute to conflicts at the meeting. Please join NJSBA host Ray Pinney as he talks with Mark Tabakin, a partner with the Weiner Law Group, about how to manage these meetings, calm the crowd and accomplish the board’s business without stepping on anyone’s rights or angering the community.
