North Shore D112 won't participate in school shootings walkout, will excuse absences

Patty Aguilar | 23 February, 2018, 23:05

The 17 minutes represent the number of victims killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

"While this is a wonderful opportunity to talk with students about the movement and the long history of such events within the United States of America, our focus is on educating all students and, as a Pre K-8 school district, many of our students may not fully understand this event", read a February 21 letter from Co-Interim Superintendents Jane Westerhold and Ed Rafferty to parents and community members in North Shore School District 112.

On March 24, the Parkland survivors are organizing a #March4OurLives rally in Washington D.C. where students and their supporters will take to the streets of the nation's capitol to "demand that their lives and safety become a priority that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today", according to their website.

While parents and students are calling on Rhodes to rescind his threat, legal experts are reminding the students that it is well within their democratic rights to protest and they should not be punished for exercising those rights. He said the school received guidance yesterday from district administration about how peaceful demonstration on campus should be handled. Students who do participate could be subject to consequences and discipline. Teachers supervised both the students who remained in their classes and those who attended the event. He said the gathering was educational in its own way.

But colleges are now saying if an applicant or accepted student joins in a peaceful protest, their admission to the school will not be revoked.
