More than 100 demonstrators interrupted the UNC Board of Governors meeting today in Chapel Hill. They were there to protest the hiring of Margaret Spellings as the new president of the UNC system. 

Today's meeting is the last for outgoing president Tom Ross, who was forced out of the position earlier this year.

Host Frank Stasio talks with WUNC education reporter Jess Clark, who was at the meeting.
