TYLERTOWN, Miss. (AP) — College students at a Mississippi highschool say they will not be returning to class whereas they protest the elimination of their prayer group from faculty hours to after faculty.
Information retailers report college students at Tylertown Excessive College in Southern Mississippi walked out of sophistication Wednesday and will not return till their faith-based program First Precedence is reinstated to its regular time, throughout faculty hours.
Pupil Tyasia Shackleford says First Precedence has existed for 15 years and meets as soon as a month to reward God. Pupil Kaitlynn Brown says college students “need to have fun God” and the college took that away.
It is unclear why this system was faraway from faculty hours.
Walthall County College superintendent Wade Carney says all student-led organizations can’t meet throughout instruction time. He says they will meet earlier than or after faculty.
