RHINELANDER (WXOW) -- School officials in Rhinelander are considering whether to discipline high school students who walked out of class to protest layoff notices given to four teachers.
About 50 students left the high school Wednesday to show support for the teachers who could lose their jobs because of a $2 million budget shortfall.
One student told a Rhinelander television station that the protesters wanted the teachers to know they "have someone who will stick up for them."
In a letter sent home to parents, Rhinelander High School Principal Paul Keats said he could not allow students to disrupt the "educational environment."
