The Providence Journal, p. C1 – October 14, 1983
About 40 students protested the vote against expanding the Chariho High School to better accommodate the increasing number of students. The student that made an announcement for the demonstration over the loud speaker was suspended.
Youth made signs that read:
“Our future is your future”
“We want knowledge to go to college”
“If you think education is expensive, try ignorance”
A student leader asserted:
“We are not doing this to hurt anyone […] We are too young to vote for the bond issue, but we do have an opinion about double sessions.”
