St. John’s students protest handling of Black History Month by school
TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Students at St. John’s Jesuit upset with how they were allowed to celebrate Black History Month walked out of school in protest Friday morning.
St. John’s administration told 13abc reporters at the school that it is an internal matter and will not comment on the situation. Later in the day, school administration sent a letter to parents, which can be viewed below.
The students said they were told to leave the campus after school administration called the Toledo Police. The students then went across the street, in front of the Home Depot on Airport Hwy. to continue their protest.
Toledo Police responded to the school, but as of 10:45 a.m. they had appeared to leave the scene.
