Oklahoma Education Board meeting turns contentious - Article Photos 5/5

Board member Herb Rozell speaks during the meeting. State Superintendent Janet Barresi conducted the first meeting of the state board of education since she assumed her post earlier this month. The meeting, in the Ralph Hodges Building, near the state Capitol, on Thursday, January 27, 2011, became contentious at times as board members and Barresi exchanged verbal barbs as to how the business of the board and the superintendent's office should be run.
