The Representative Council of I the Ann Arbor Education Association (formerly called the Ann Arbor Teachers' Association) has passed resolutions supporting "the black students of Ann Arbor High School in their protest of racial inequity at the high school" and supporting the high school faculty's response to the recent racial tensions at the school. The resolutions also voiced support of "rapid implementation of as many of the students' 21 demands as are practicable." The demands were presented by the Negro students May 27 in order to "correct racial inequities" at Ann Arbor High. The faculty modified and recommended 14 of the 21 demands. The remaining seven will be referred to a Bi-Racial Citizens' Advisory Board, which has not L yet been created. The Board of Education is expected to review the 21 demands Wednesday.'
