EL PASO - Between one and two hundred students walked out of their second period classes this morning to protest what they call unfair treatment from their principal.

Luis Liano is the principal at El Paso High, and students claim he favors sports over academics and recently fired one of their favorite teachers. They demanded that he be removed from his position.

The students walked laps around the school chanting "No Liano," and we know of at least one student who says he was cited for disorderly conduct. That same student told us that police made a deal with them: if they all went back to their classes peacefully, no one else would be cited. The protest lasted about an hour.

The students said they planned it yesterday and did not expect such big a turnout. A statement from El Paso Independent School District said: "El Paso High Students had a peaceful interaction with administration during their second period class to express both negative and positive concerns. Students returned to class safely and in an orderly manner."

If so ,your daughter is taught well by an idiot MAMA!!

If you don't know what's really going on, shut up. It's funny because going from class to class taking out students for the protest, it seemed like no teacher retaliated when we asked for them. I guess we have the support. Thanks to all the parents for your support on this issue.

I CANNOT BELIEVE THE STUDENTS FROM EL PASO HIGH PROTESTED TO HAVE THE PRINCIPAL REMOVED.
I HAVE HEARD HE HAS MADE A BIG CHANGE @ THE SCHOOL...... YOU ALL DON'T REALIZE WHAT THE PRINCIPAL JOB DESCRIPTION IS AND WHAT HIS DUTIES ARE AS PRINCIPAL. MAYBE YOUR FAVORITE TEACHER WAS NOT MEETING THE REQUIREMENTS THE SCHOOL NEEDED TO ADVANCE FORWARD. YOU ALL ARE THERE TO LEARN NOT TO PROTEST! SAVE THE PROTEST FOR SOMETHING BIGGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GROW UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BE MATURE!!!!!!!

You're old and you don't even know what's going on in our school so shut up!

Sir perhaps you do not realize that the principal job description does NOT include intimidation and favoritism. These are the qualities that Mr. Liano has. Yes he has made big changes in the school and few of them are positive changes. We are learning at school, that's exactly why we are protesting. We KNOW we are being treated unfairly and since the petition was ignored we took other measures. You need to look at this walkout with an open mind. You sound extremely ignorant

Shut up and get your butts back to class!!!!IDIOTS!!!!!

NO LIANO!!!!!!!!!

YES LIANO !!!!! YES LIANO !!!!! YES LIANO !!!!!!!

YES LIANO!!!! YOU STAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You sure are rivaling the maturity level of high schoolers. You should be ashamed of yourself. You're 40 and need to act it. Give some real insight by posting intelligent reasons as to why he's doing a good job. He isn't. He's treating the staff and students unjustly. He is turning our school into a fear mongering institution by firing permanent fixtures such as Troncoso. You need to stop being so disconnected from what is really happening in that school and find out for yourself.
