Meeting to discuss American flag shirt controversy

Parents and students are expected to pack the Morgan Hill Unified School Board meeting Tuesday night following last week's t-shirt controversy.

Last Wednesday on Cinco de Mayo, school officials asked five Live Oak high school students to go home or turn their t-shirts inside out because they had American flags on them.

The next day, a group of Latino students protested with a walk out. The monthly school board meeting is being held at the Britton Middle School Theater at six p.m..

Officials say it was moved there because a large turnout is expected.
