La Crosse Logan High School students led walkout

Approximately 35 Logan High School students participated in a student-organized walkout today.

According to students participating in the demonstration, some white students have used the ‘n-word’ while talking to black students in the school. Students say that they are concerned about the school’s response to the use of the word.

Students assembled along Ranger Drive as a group and conveyed their message through signs, chants, and songs. Within the school, classes continued as usual and without interruption, a School District of La Crosse representative said.
