High School Offers Skateboarding Class


In response to a student’s petition, the East Side Community High School on 12th Street in the East Village is now offering skateboarding classes. This is made somewhat less insane by the fact that the school’s playground already featured ramps that were a destination for local skaters on afternoons and weekends. But still, for anyone who experienced the “skaters vs. the Man” dynamic that has permeated most American high schools for the last twenty-odd years, this is a bit of an Obama moment. [VOA News]
