Northwestern Students Walk out to Defend Their School

Posted in Uncategorized by Nicole Conaway on March 27, 2010

Detroit Thursday March 24, 2010 – About 200 Northwestern High School students walked out of school and marched to DPS headquarters to let Robert Bobb know how they feel about his proposal to close their school. The lead organizer was a senior, ROTC member, and was threatened with arrest and loss of college scholarships if he went through with the action. His willingness to take this risk is the example we must follow.
