Herkimer High School Protest

STUDENTS PROTEST BUDGET CUTS

At the board meeting last night, the students were informed for the first time that the business program was going to be cut for next year, causing three of the most liked teachers in the school to lose their jobs, and switching other teachers to half days. Since the kids say meant nothing at the board meeting, they decided to protest hoping people will realize the impact a school without a business program will have.

I am a certified English teacher for the university of West Dakota, and I believe that these students need all of these classes to be successful in life. And from the look of it they need extra English classes.

We did a great job on the protest today! The school board needs to realize that Us Students in the high school and middle school NEED these business Classes for our future There is not many jobs out there that doesn't involve some kind of Technology!

It started with the Village now the school. Why are we giving up in Herkimer? Time to step up and show community pride. Get into that next school board mting. The kids are the future of Herk and the country! Stop quitting! Lets get answers.
