A father in Towson, Maryland, was forcefully ejected from a local town hall forum for asking the wrong question.

UPDATE: Good News for MD Dad Arrested at Board of Ed Meeting

Robert Small had concerns over the Common Core education initiative, feeling that it was dumbing down the curriculum in his local school district.

"My question is, how does lowering America's educational standards prepare kids for community college?" asked Small, before soon being approached by a security guard — who was also an off-duty cop — and being dragged away from his seat.

The outspoken father then implored the crowd to take action. "Don't stand for this," said Small. "You're sitting here like cowards. You have questions!"

Apparently, Small didn't follow the proper protocol of submitting his question in writing ahead of the meeting, which is why he was taken outside, and eventually arrested.

Small now faces jail time for the incident, or a fine of up to $2,500.
