Two hundred Olney High School students joined a mass rally outside their school last May 20 to express concerns about school conditions and put forth a platform of improvements to the building and teaching staff. Graduating Olney senior and Youth United for Change leader Leonard Seabrooks noted, “Our school needs support and a serious plan for improvement so no more students have to go through what I did.” The Youth United for Change chapter at Olney, which organized the rally, supports breaking up the high school into three to five smaller schools, each with a separate principal. Olney High School has a new principal this fall, Karl Perry.
