Is this what the leftists had in mind when they called on the youth of the nation to rise up?
A Group of rowdy high school students chained themselves to desks at the local school board chambers in order to protest a curriculum change. They chanted, screamed, and banged their hands on the desks for two hours, preventing the meeting from taking place.
What deserved such an outburst?
According to KSAZ-TV, the students are upset that the board is considering no longer allowing a Mexican-American history class -- a class that teaches history from a Mexican-American perspective -- to substitute for the required U.S. history class:
As KSAZ explains, the class is being reconsidered because it may violate the following state "ethnic studies" class guidelines:
The news outlet reports:
A state law passed in December basically discouraged the classes, saying they segregate students. And this group of students wanted no part of it.
They took over the room, chanted "fight back," and basically ran the governing board out of the meeting.
Security tried to come in and tried to take the students away, but many of them apparently chained themselves together.
This isn't over though. The governing board is going to re-schedule its meeting to decide the fate of the classes.
