Student activism...From today's New York Times:
About 75 students barricaded themselves in a dining hall at the New School on Wednesday night, holding what they called an occupation to protest the leadership of the institution’s embattled president, Bob Kerrey.
protest, which began about 8 p.m., echoed dissidence among many of the
school’s faculty members, who in the past week have cast votes of no
confidence in Mr. Kerrey’s ability to lead the school in Greenwich
Village, which he has run since 2001.
Large recycling containers and tables blocked doorways, and banners went up, some reading “Books Not Bureaucracy.”
