Zacarias Urges End to Prop. 227 Protests

June 11, 1998

Anticipating walkouts at several Los Angeles schools today in protest of Proposition 227, Supt. Ruben Zacarias issued a statement Wednesday urging students not to participate in such demonstrations.

"I want to appeal to students to stay in school," Zacarias said. "Proposition 227 has passed. There is nothing to be gained from walkouts and other demonstrations. Staying in school, studying hard and registering to vote is in their best interest."

Last week, students at Belmont and Woodrow Wilson high schools staged demonstrations against the measure to dismantle bilingual education, which was approved June 2 by a wide margin.
