Tempers flared at an Indiana school board meeting this week where a board member got out of his chair and attempted to lunge toward a parent who insulted him.


The incident took place Monday at a Shenandoah school board meeting in Middletown, where the parent, Jason Greer, claims the board member was triggered after being called an “idiot.”

Footage shows the board member getting up out of his chair to confront Greer who stays sitting down, at which point a school resource officer has to block the board member from reaching the parent.



According to Greer, who gave a statement to local NBC affiliate WTHR, it all started when he gave a presentation demonstrating how masks create unsafe oxygen levels for children.

“During the board meeting I provided a demonstration with an oxygen meter proving that per OSHA standards our kids are breathing unsafe levels of oxygen due to the mask mandate in our school. Mr. Troxell asked a follow up question. I attempted to answer but he was unwilling to listen. At which point I said, ‘You’re not even trying to understand.’ He said, ‘I don’t want to listen because you don’t make sense.’ I replied with, ‘You’re an idiot.’

At which point he attempted to physically assault me but was restrained by three board members and an officer. I was seated this whole time and showed no aggression. At which point the officers escorted me out but allowed the aggressor to stay. He called me an a—— and a bastard. He then threw a temper tantrum and his papers. He attempted to quit but the board members asked him to sit down and stated ‘No, we need you.’

The meeting continued after I was escorted out and he continued to be combative and dismissive to other parents who spoke. His eyes were even closed at one point.” 


Greer says his wife, Brooke, was also treated dismissively by Troxell, who he says called her “ridiculous as she was calmly speaking trying to come up with a resolution.”

“People say, ‘Go to the meetings and show your support, and let your voices be heard,’” Brooke told local media.


“And then you get there, and you’re almost attacked by a board member, and you’re ridiculed and mocked, and they laugh under their breath. It’s not a way that it should be handled.”


Addressing the board member’s violent actions, Shenandoah Schools Superintendent Ron Green said the member apologized for the eruption and will be held accountable.


“I have talked with the school board member this morning,” Green said in a statement provided to KTHR. “He is sorry for his actions. Many, many wrongs, and one that we will take care of. He will definitely receive something from our school board president. But the bottom line is the school board member knows that his actions were not representative of membership and representing Shenandoah Schools.”


KTHR reports despite the outburst the school board went on to approve an extension to a mask mandate that will last until Jan. 10, 2022.


The board member’s angry tantrum comes as Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland called on the FBI to beware of threats from parents against school administrators, after a letter from the National School Board Association equated unruly parents with “domestic terrorists.”



“The Department takes these incidents seriously and is committed to using its authority and resources to discourage these threats, identify them when they occur, and prosecute them when appropriate,” Garland wrote. “In the coming days, the Department will announce a series of measures designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel.”
