Mendota students rally to save teacher's job

FRESNO, California They walked out of classes and marched to the school district headquarters Thursday afternoon in support of drama teacher Tahner Filkins. Students say Filkins is being fired, and district officials won't tell anyone why.

Filkins was not a part of Thursday's protest. Officials from the Mendota Unified School District would not comment on the teacher's job status because it is a personnel matter.
