About 50 teachers, students, BAMN and other supporters, including Members of the Michigan Operating Engineers Union carried handmade signs and chanted boldly as we picketed near the school sign. Our voices were so loud, neighborhood students said they heard us from their house and came out and joined the picket!

Radio, internet, and TV news media all covered today’s event. Detroit CBS Local reports that DPS is “reviewing the situation” with Principal Lockhart.

We must build on this initial victory and not rest until Mr. Lockhart and all abusive Principals are out of our schools and Gov. Snyder’s Emergency Manager is out of Detroit!

Join us at the next picket to stand up against Principal Abuse and for the quality schools our students deserve Tuesday March 24, 3:15 at J.E. Clark Preparatory Academy
