Drama at a local beauty school as students were asked to leave after an argument.
Several students said there was a dispute during class about the curriculum and three of them were asked to leave.
“The reason the discussion was going on was because we are confused about the curriculum,” Teneshia Thomas said. “They can’t seem to answer our questions.”
Thomas started with the Fall class.
In addition to the curriculum, she also has concerns about some students receiving hours they didn’t earn.
She says the sacrifice she makes to come to school is too great to not be treated fairly.
“If we’re going to come here everyday and sacrifice certain time with our children or even making money, then I expect that to get what I come here for, an education,” Thomas said.
Cinamon Sexton said, “We all come here everyday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. but we all are on different levels. We don’t know what to do, when to do it.”
Others expressed concerns about financial aid.
“We have students who started in August and they’re just now receiving their checks today,” Kayrine Johnson said.
News Channel 4 wasn’t allowed inside the building but we did speak with the superintendent by phone.
She told us administrators plan to discuss the concerns with students and staff after spring break.
We tried to speak with other students who didn’t have any concerns but we we’re told officials asked them not to speak with the media.
Edith Gregory who said she’s come here for years, said the service has always been great and she will continue to come.
“They’ve always been very professional,” she said. “It’s a great atmosphere. I feel comfortable I didn’t feel like there was any threat to me or that the argument would last long.”
