SUDBURY, Mass. (AP) — Hundreds of students at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School have walked out of class to protest the school’s handling of an alleged sexual assault that occurred in 2013.
The students said they were upset with the school’s actions. The alleged assault didn’t come to light until last week.
The Boston Globe reported the students walked out Monday morning and gathered at a sports field to hold a moment of silence and give speeches.
Some held signs reading “No means no” and “Stop blaming victims and start holding attackers accountable.”
