This past Tuesday, an estimated 250 students staged a walk-out during the school day at East Lyme High School.

They were protesting what they say is the administration's failure to take action against students guilty of racist speech or actions.

Reporter Elizabeth Regan of "The Day" has been reporting on this story.

She spoke about it "All Things Considered."

John Henry Smith is Connecticut Public’s host of All Things Considered, its flagship afternoon news program. In his 20th year as a professional broadcaster, he’s covered both news and sports.
