Nampa Students Protest Luna Plan

Students at Columbia and Nampa High Schools joined students across the state in staging protests in opposition to Tom Luna's education reform plan. Hundreds of students marched through the streets of Nampa this morning shouting "Stop the Lunacy" and "Say No to Luna" as they waved signs supporting their schools and their teachers.

These students were urged by a local business to stay on the public sidewalk and out of the business's private parking lot.

A native Nampa resident stood in his driveway watching as hundreds of students marched past shaking his head and saying that in all his years he has never seen anything like this. "Things are about to change," he said.
