Video: Students 'blacklisted' at senior rally?

NEED TO KNOW
  • 34 students who weren't graduating felt humiliated at a school rally in California
  • They were called out by name and told to say goodbye to those who were graduating

During a mandatory rally Tuesday at North High School in Bakersfield, California, 34 students say they felt humiliated when they were isolated from their fellow seniors for not graduating.

CNN affiliate KERO reports that two truancy officers called the students by name and dismissed them. They were told to stand and look at those who were graduating and say goodbye. One student says his classmates were "blacklisted" in front of everyone. Officials with the Kern High School District tell KERO they don't condone the actions of the truancy officers. They say it wasn't approved and that the principal was not on campus during the rally. What do you think?
