Students protest changes at John F. Kennedy High School in Marble HillPosted: Updated:
A group of John F. Kennedy High School students rallied outside of the education building Friday to protest their school?s dwindling number of counselors.
Students wanted education officials to know they are unhappy the school only employs six guidance counselors. They are also upset over new credit requirements. Students say due to the restructuring of credits, it will take longer to graduate from high school.
The protest is a continuation from rallies on Thursday. However, school safety officers say Friday?s protest was peaceful unlike its predecessor where nine students were arrested for throwing bottles at a police car.
