Students at Howard U. Middle School walk out to protest teacher firings
WASHINGTON (WJLA) - Students at Howard University Middle School of Mathematics and Science in D.C. walked out of classes in protest Monday of the recent firings of instructors for allegedly teaching African-American history.
The three terminated were social studies teachers who were said to have implemented African-American history into their class curriculum.
Parents noted that the school bears the name of an historically black university--and the school's student body is 90-percent African American.
The principal and the school have yet to respond to the allegations.
