CHICAGO (CBS) — The hunger strike continues over the future direction of Dyett High School in the South Side Kenwood neighborhood. WBBM’s Bob Roberts spoke with one of the strikers.
Striker April Stogner says the strikers anticipated when they began that they would go 30 days with only liquids. Speaking outside of a Chicago Teachers Union sponsored event, she said they will hold out for a green technology based curriculum, not an art school. She says what the Board of Education has proposed is not what they want.
