— Angry Durham residents are hoping the school board will stop transfering children with behavioral problems into the school in their neighborhood.

Protestors marched in front of Durham School headquarters Thursday. School superintendant Ann Denlinger moved 34 of the students from the Carver Hill Center to the Hollway Street Advancement Center. The move wass designed to free up space, but protestors claim Denlinger is insensitive to the black community

Protestors say they'll keep complaining until they get their way.
