RIP Philly Schools

January 16, 2013 “Zombies dance to protest school closings” by Kristen Graham:

The zombies danced for a few minutes, then collapsed in a heap.

“We represent the students affected by the closing plan,” Benjamin Franklin High sophomore Hausim Talbot said later. “Our hopes would be dead.”

School-closing protests are nothing new in Philadelphia, but students who stood outside The School District of Philadelphia building today at 440 N. Broad St. added a new twist. Members of the Philadelphia Student Union staged a “Student Apocalypse: A Brainless Future” dressed as zombies to rally against the district’s plan to close 37 public schools.
