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.

“This is a community school,” she says. “They have to listen to the community. We’re tired of being shut out. We weren’t even at the table when they made the decision. We weren’t even allowed in the building. They locked the hunger strikers outside. That’s unacceptable.”

Stogner says a school that would emphasize both technology and art could be acceptable. She says she believes City Hall and CEO Forrest Claypool got the message, but she says they don’t want to listen.
