NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio - Students from the North Ridgeville school system are serious about their education and want to see some positive changes beginning next month.
Several North Ridgeville students wrote original lyrics to a popular summer song and created a music video to help pass a 5.9-mill school levy that would reduce staff cuts, keep extra-curricular activities and improve school conditions in the district.
The video, titled "Vote 'Yes' on the North Ridgeville School Levy," is a parody to the song "What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction and was produced by students from the North Ridgeville school district.
The YouTube video, published on Sept. 5, 2012, has been viewed more than 3,500 times and has received nearly 60 likes. The video shows the poor conditions inside the district's schools and the song's lyrics explain why the levy needs to be passed.
