Vigil for students at River Valley Schools
Gov. Bob Taft's mansion in Bexley, August 21

 

On the evening of August 21, Marion parents and Columbus supporters held a vigil at Ohio Gov. Bob Taft's mansion in Bexley to let him know the people of Ohio want him to close the River Valley Schools and reassign the students to other schools immediately.

Noreen Warnock of Ohio Citizen Action said:

If a tornado roared through Marion and destroyed the River Valley Middle and High Schools, the state government would show up within hours to find a safe place for the children to learn. The River Valley Schools are just as uninhabitable, and the state government has spent years dragging its feet.

Background on Marion.
