A group of angry Austin High School seniors protested Monday over what they call a broken promise.

They say school officials promised to relax the uniform dress code for the rest of the year as long the kids passed the TAKS test.

That’s a standardized test that all Texas students must pass to get a diploma. The number of students who pass counts toward each school’s performance rating.

The Austin protesters passed, but the dress code didn’t change.

The demonstrators also complained they were locked outside in the cold and rain Monday until the media showed up at the school.
