Students protest at Ottawa High School

Posted by wlpo on March 18, 2014

The morning after the Ottawa High School Board decided to cut their building trades teacher, the students staged a protest.  A sit-in was held this morning.  Students were upset that board members decided Monday night to end the building trades program by not rehiring teacher David Keely.

School board members say they district can no longer afford the classes.

Keely expressed his frustration on Facebook, saying “taxpayers should not be satisfied with an administration whose actions are dictated by testing and number crunching”.
