Episode 5 of Southlake: an NBC News podcast

About this episode:

The election to fill two school board seats takes center stage — and becomes a referendum on the school district’s diversity plan. At a secretly recorded meeting, members of Southlake Families PAC grill a prospective candidate about conservative political causes, from opposition to Black Lives Matter to abortion. As school board candidates debate whether Carroll Senior High School’s code of conduct is enough to protect students, a queer 16-year-old takes a complaint of harassment to Carroll’s principal — and the response leaves her feeling even less safe at school. In the final days before the election, candidates knock on doors, and outgoing Mayor Laura Hill gives a speech calling opponents of the diversity plan to action.
