Heated McDowell Co. School Board Meeting

Updated: Wednesday, January 23 2013, 07:11 AM EST

A McDowell County School Board meeting gets heated after dozens gather to discuss the decision to remove "God" from a young student's poem during a Veteran's Day program.

The incident angered several parents in McDowell County and residents who told board members they were disappointed in the board's decision. The superintendent apologized and board members are now reviewing a draft on religion in schools.

A public meeting is planned for next month.
