D.C. High School Students Protest New Security Policy

Published: April 8, 2008

WASHINGTON – A new security plan implemented by Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee at Woodrow Wilson Senior High School prompted nearly 100 high school students to protest on March 31.

The new short-term plan involved doing away with the students’ free lunch period, requiring that they eat their boxed meals in their classrooms.
