DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) -- School administrators at a southeast Alabama high school have revoked some privileges for students after they held a brief sit-in to protest the dismissal of about a dozen teachers.
The Dothan Eagle reports that about a dozen students staged a brief sit-in at Northview High School in Dothan during break time. Teacher dismissals often happen at the end of a school year, as the school system may choose to non-renew non-tenured teachers. For the full story click here, http://bit.ly/17z0cvm.
Northview High School Principal Chris Shaw said the protest was "about as mild and calm as it could possibly be."
Still, the school administration responded to the protest by suspending the student body's break time privileges until the end of the year, or about a week as the school year ends in just a few days.
