Students Walk Out Of Class In Rhinelander

Posted Thursday, May 10, 2012 --- 7:20 a.m.

RHINELANDER, Wis. (AP) -- School administrators in Rhinelander are considering discipline for high school students who walked out of class to protest layoff notices given to four teachers.

About 50 students left the high school Wednesday to show support for the teachers who could lose their jobs because of a $2 million budget shortfall. Student Dalton Rose tells WJFW-TV (http://bit.ly/Jj5GfY ) the protesters wanted the teachers to know they "have someone who will stick up for them."

Principal Paul Keats sent a letter home to parents that said he could not allow students to disrupt the "educational environment."
