CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Akron Education Association is calling on students to stop the violence in their schools. According to the Association, it has gotten to the point where staff is resigning as a result.

This violence has led the AEA to pass a no-confidence vote for the Office of Student Support Services, the Office of Special Education, and Student Support Services director Dan Rambler.

President Patricia Shipe says that short-term and long-term solutions need to be taken into account to avoid for this to continue. This comes as Bedford High School extended their remote learning until November 29th as a result of school violence.
