200 Barbour County Students Boycott School

It's now day two that Barbour County students are speaking out. Last Friday we told you about their protest, on Monday they boycotted school. Nearly 200 students didn't attend classes today protesting the decision to hire Garry Quick as the new superintendent.

School administrators tell our news parter WTVM they hope students return soon. Parents say they want the school board to reverse their decision.

"It was obviously disappointing and students need to take the opportunity to be in school. I would like to encourage them to come back to school and finish up things that we have started," says Principal David Hobdy. The students plan to stay out of school again Tuesday.  School adminstors say say those will be considered unexcused absences.

Interim school superintednet, Eddie Wright says the board's decision is final.
