Crystal City High School Walkout
The protest marked a culmination of discontent over discrimination against Tejanos and the generally low opinion that Anglo teachers and administrators displayed toward their Hispanic students.  Though the school offered college preparatory classes to the Angelo students (who made up 15% of the schools population), none were offered to the Hispanic students.  The curriculum had no Mexican American elements, nor did the school teach any courses in bilingual language.  Teachers and administrators discouraged the speaking of Spanish that they often hit students with rulers if they uttered any Spanish words.  This was brought to a breaking point turned out to be a dispute over the school's established policy of setting a quota of one Mexican American cheerleader out of 4 total slots.  When many students and their supportive parents galvanized by MAYO activists they mimicked a form of direct action already being utilized by Mexican American Youth  by simply walking out of their classes. While picketing students continued to demand access to college prep courses, bicultural and bilingual educational opportunities, more Hispanic counselors and teachers, and open student body elections for all cheerleader slots and studen government positions.  The students received harrassment, termination for part time jobs. Walkout was effective when the local school board suffering from reduced state appropriations caused by low student attendance reached a settlement and conceeded most of the students demands.
