I drove by when they were out protesting. It was raining. I am from out of town. why didn't they just skip school that day. They must not care to much about getting an education.

Given the sad state of education, I'd bet that 5 or 10 of the 27 couldn't even locate New York City on a map.

i fully agree with the students, as i am a former student myself, and i have to disagree with the other with the previous comments made...most canton students do care about their education and i can also say that most could indeed find New York on the map...Kewanee is a more ignorant town the Canton by far
