Students join the boycott: a sit-down strike against boredom?

Here’s what happened at Garfield today: Admins came into classrooms and tried to pull students out to take the MAP test in the library. Students stared straight ahead, and wouldn’t budge.

In a library with about 60 computers stations set up for the MAP, there were single digit numbers of students sitting at computers. Of those, many sat at the computers and refused to press even a single button.

That’s how that went.

Lots of local news was covering….

Here are some interviews that King 5 News did with students at Garfield.

All power to the students!  Let’s spread this to other schools!
