BX students protest DOE consolidation(03/08/12) THE BRONX -
Bronx high school students stormed out of class today to protest the city's plan to add a third school into an already cramped facility.
Students at Schomburg Satellite Academy and Bronx Regional High School rallied against the Department of Education's proposal to consolidate [ROADS] Charter High School into the same building. The schools currently share libraries, a gym and a lunchroom.
Nearly 100 students marched to the office of state Sen. Ruben Diaz (D-32nd District), where they received support from his educational liaison.
A joint public hearing is scheduled for Mon., March 12.
