Protesters Outraged by Forced School Integration.

Protesters lined the sidewalks in front of Lower Merion High School in Ardmore, Pa. Monday night to show their distaste for a plan to shuffle around the student bodies of the township’s two high schools. Those protesters then marched inside the school to sound off one last time about the proposal.

The plan in question would take students, many who are within a 10 minute walk of Lower Merion High School, and bus them a few miles away to Harriton High School in Rosemont. The Lower Merion School Board said the plan would bring balance to an imbalanced student population at Lower Merion High and allow students more class options.

Narberth and South Ardmore, predominately African-American neighborhoods, are most affected by the plan. Also, some parents will no longer have a say in which high school their student attends, depending on where in the township they live.
