Bronx students claim civil rights abuse

Students at one Bronx High School are speaking out against education officials over civil rights issues.

 

Kids at International Community High School say their school is among several across the city in need of more funding for sports programs. They claim schools made up of mostly white students get more funding and better treatment.

 

The students say what the NYC Department of Education is doing is an abuse of their civil rights.

 

They're also calling on education officials to rehire teachers who were fired for supporting the students' position.
