Thanks to a reader who informed us about this story. There is a student and staff rebellion at LaGuardia High School.
From the NY Post's Salim Algar:
The music stopped at famed La Guardia HS in Manhattan Friday as fuming students left their classrooms and massed in hallways to protest what they say is a waning emphasis on the arts.
A faction of kids at the renowned school asserts that administrators are betraying its artistic foundations in favor of standard academic pursuits.
The protesters delivered a letter outlining their concerns and solutions Friday, urging administrators to return the school to its roots.
NBC 4 News covered the story also. Jonathan Dienst's report shows the teachers voted no confidence in the principal by a wide 119 to 15 margin.
Protests at long time stable schools like LaGuardia and Forest Hills.
Is this isolated or is there a trend toward fighting the system?
