Calling Newton's high school students

Some Alabama high school students have organized a walk-to-school campaign, walking as a group up to 2-1/2 miles to school along roads with no sidewalks or shoulders. The students seem to be protesting high gas prices rather than a poor walk/bike infrastructure and culture, but no matter. They're walking to school.

Earlier in the month, students at a New Jersey High School tried to give the school bike racks as a class gift ... a gift the principal rejected. So, they organized a ride in protest.
