It is rare for a School Board to put a discussion about recent school assemblies on the agenda for their regular meeting. But rarely do school assemblies rile up a community (at least online) and bring up questions of the separation of church and state.
As part of its anti-bullying program, the Ojai Unified School District (OUSD) agreed to have Nick Vujicic speak at Matilija Junior High and Nordhoff High schools during the school days Sept. 17 and Sept. 18 at a school assembly-type event. Parents were invited to attend.
He also spoke at local Villanova Preparatory School and The Thacher School, both local private schools.
