Thursday morning, students at Clay High School walked out of class.

Colonial students stood by the side of the road, chanting “save our school”, and holding signs that said things like “Save Clay” and “Stop Failing Us” written in the school’s colors. ABC 57 News tweeted video of the protest.

The school, founded in 1939, is the Fine Arts high school of the South Bend Community Schools’ magnet program. This week the trustees voted to shut it down after the 2023-2024 school year.

Last year the school had around 850 students.

Protest all you want, kids. What you should REALLY be mad about is how much money the school system is spending to give you a subpar education.

So subpar, in fact, that they can’t even retain enough students to keep your school open!

You’re protesting the wrong thing…
