Following Deyshia Hargrave's removal from Monday's Vermilion Parish School Board Meeting, the Louisiana Association of Educators has posted her response.

The LAE posted the video statement from Hargrave, who returned to the classroom Wednesday.

She said  her "voice was silenced" after she was removed from the meeting where she was addressing the Superintendent's pay raise.

In the video, Hargrave commends the community for speaking out on her behalf.
