Protest Continues Outside Ottawa High School

Posted by wlpo on March 21, 2014

The protest of cutting building trades at Ottawa High School continues into a fourth day.

Well over 100 people demonstrated for a third day Thursday after the school board’s decision to cut teacher Dave Keely.  One of the protestors is Ottawa Junior Travis Dunham. He’s finishing up a three-day suspension for walking out of class in protest.

Dunham says over 100 students were suspended along with him.  He can’t understand why a class paid for with grants and donations would be an answer to helping a budget deficit.
