A group of students protesting the approval of a gay-straight alliance at Boyd County High School in Kentucky refused to enter the school Wednesday, according to the Henderson [Ky.] Gleaner.
The students gathered in a corner of the parking lot while school administrators and Boyd County sheriff Philip Sturgill tried to talk them into going to class. The impromptu demonstration, which involved about 100 students, broke up before 9 a.m., and students went to class without punishment, said BCHS assistant principal Richard Cyrus.
The school's council approved the alliance at its meeting Monday after rejecting it on two previous occasions.
