Rally to keep technology program at Hollis Brookline High School

By HATTIE BERNSTEIN, Nashua Telegraph

On Thursday, for the second night in a row, dozens of students, teachers and parents wearing bright blue FIRST Robotics Team T-shirts crowded into the multipurpose room at the middle school to lobby against proposed cuts to the high school’s technology program that would eliminate an engineering course and the extracurricular FIRST program.In addition to technology cuts, the board also is proposing to cut a full-time technology teacher, a full-time social studies teacher, and a part-time math and computer teacher, as well as reducing a full-time art teacher to part-time. It was the proposed cuts to the technology program, however, that drew the crowds. Supporters came armed with fact sheets and emotional testimony about how the program had benefited them or their children.
