Radio Rookie Rocky Tayeh reports on the City Council's latest effort to improve education in NYC – a hearing held especially for students to testify about the state of their schools.
Students speak out
Considering that I've been to 5 different high schools in the state of New York I've seen it all. From high school staff members harassing students with inappropriate comments, metal detectors, crowded classrooms, gym class in auditoriums etc. Students like myself deserve and seek change in order to fully gain an awesome high school experience and become successful people in the future.
