March 4th Protest Against Rochester Mayoral Control

On March 4th, 2010, the SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) sponsored a protest against mayoral control of the school board in Rochester, NY.

Several weeks prior, Rochester Mayor Robert J. Duffy announced his plan to get rid of school board elections in favor of appointment because he felt that much-needed changes were not happening rapidly enough under the old system of elections. His position was that change can happen much more rapidly when the board chosen by polling.

More on the protest can be found on the Democrat and Chronicle website.
