Portland students' protest forces public talk about school bond, walkout planned
Portland teens forced school board members to publicly explain why they are delaying a bond to fix their crumbling, overcrowded high school by threatening a sit-in at Tuesday's board meeting.
The Lincoln High School students, who were about 30-strong at the meeting, want the board to put a $750 million construction bond on November's ballot. The deadline to place measures on that ballot is Thursday.
