Speaker wearing mask

Lenry Van Zyl, who spoke at the Denton school board meeting Tuesday night wore a rainbow mask throughout the three-hour meeting, saying he wore it because the Board of Trustees “looked like clowns” for the last two years. Van Zyl was one of five speakers who denounced what they say is pornography in DISD library books. 

During the first open forum of the Denton ISD board meeting on Tuesday night, five residents challenged board members to insist school leaders review books and audiobooks they say contain pornography.

School board meetings cede the floor to residents and guests in three separate open forums, which allow a speaker to address the elected leaders, administrators and superintendent for three minutes.
