We’ve just heard from Fresno Unified Trustees Terry Slatic and Veva Islas about the board’s motion to censure Slatic. But there’s also a group of concerned citizens and parents who want Slatic to be recalled from the board, in part because Bullard High School students say he threatened to kick kids off the cheer team if they brought up a blackface incident again. The incident involved two cheerleaders who were allowed to stay on the team.  We spoke with Stacy Williams, who is leading the recall effort.
