Handful of students detained during protest at Davis High School

YAKIMA, Wash. -- A handful of students were detained Friday while protesting plans to remodel Davis High School.

Police say they were standing in the street and swinging their picket signs at cars.

Almost a hundred marched between Walnut and Yakima Avenue.

They claim Davis is being short changed on upgrades compared to the projects Eisenhower High School and Stanton Academy.

This as the school board accepted a lower bid on the Davis work.

"It would make me heartbroken to see that my brother can't have the same opportunities as Ike kids do or Stanton kids do or West Valley," said Davis student Mateo Lopez. "It doesn't even matter. We should have the equal opportunity to be able to perform in state-of-the-art equipment."

Other students who protested were told they'd receive Saturday detention and would not be allowed to attend this weekend's football game and homecoming dance.
