What you are about to see is members of the Gilbert community join together in prayer. Their ability to do this, even before a school board meeting, was fought for 14 years. None of the previous school board members had the courage to take a stand.

Gilbert Watch published an article some time ago that listed the conservative board’s accomplishments. See The Accomplishments of the Gilbert Schools Governing Board.
Mr. Colvin has added some more.
