District officials didn’t have much to say after Tuesday’s student-led protest during which approximately 70 students walked out of class and marched several blocks from Compton High School to district headquarters.
On Wednesday, Superintendent Darin Brawley released the following statement encouraging “stakeholders” to voice their concerns:
"…However, it should not be at the expense of valuable instructional time for students. We encourage that in the future, any and all protests by students be conducted before or after school."
Supt. Brawley went on to assure frustrated students concerned about the district’s plan to dissolve Advanced Placement programs that “no such thing has been proposed nor implemented for any of our secondary school sites.”
