Protests in Buffalo

More than two dozen students at St. Mary's School for the Deaf in Buffalo, New York refused to attend classes after a favorite teacher was fired. Math teacher Nettie Brewer has been at the school for nearly 5 years but the principle choose not to recommend her for tenure and refused to explain why. The principle reacted to the protest by cancelling all after school activities for next week.
