    Parents, students and community leaders went before the Fresno School Board on Wednesday night to protest the hiring of a Caucasian instructor to teach African American and Latino studies at Gaston Middle School.

 Critics say the district should have hired someone who better reflects the students who will attend the school beginning on August 18.  But a former student disagrees, saying the teacher selected is the best person to teach the course- regardless of his race.  Kathryn Herr has more information on the controversy surrounding Gaston Middle School.
