Maryland students protesting school conditions met with attack dogs

See this interview of Ashley Pinder and Erin James, activist students at Northwestern High School in Hyattsville, Maryland. On March 1, the students planned a walk-out of the school because of class sizes of up to 40 students per class — “We’re not learning” says Erin — unappetizing and non-nutritional school lunches, and the deporting of their Filipino teachers. As Erin puts it, the authorities responded “very immaturely”: the front doors were locked, police came to the school with attack dogs, and several students were suspended for “thought crimes”.
