Parents upset at loss of support staff for students

Native parents in Vancouver, British Columbia, are upset over the loss of 33 staff members who are supposed to help Native students stay in school and graduate.

School officials say the program, started 15 years ago, hasn't improved graduation rates. So they plan to hire more teachers and a counselor to help Native students.

The school board says First Nations leaders support the change.
