Should kids who cut class for gun protests face punishment?

Grimsley High School students walk out of class in protest of gun laws	 	 	 			Grimsley High School

After students in Florida and other states have protested over gun control since the suspect in the Parkland shooting, Nikolas Cruz, allegedly used an AR-15 rifle, Rose said he will allow students in the Fulton district to protest.

11Alive contacted 16 school districts across the metro Atlanta area to ask how they plan to handle the walkout demonstrations. He says school officials are also increasing supervision and security at sporting events held within the school.

The Women's March Youth EMPOWER organization is calling for students, teachers and other supports to take part in a nationwide school walkout for 17 minutes on March 14 at 10 a.m.

Marches, walkouts and sit-ins are the embodiment of our core freedoms: the right to speak out, to assemble peaceably and petition our government for change.

Auer called the protest successful.

Police in Stockton are advising commuters to avoid the area around Stagg High School after students staged a walk out.

Watson said some students walked off campus, though, and were "shadowed by Gwinnett County Police as a safety precaution".

Those students will likely be suspended.

- Prioritizing immediate supports for specific students, and implementing an escort protocol to significantly restrict hallway access during instructional time. Justice Abe Fortas wrote that neither students nor teachers "shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate".

Johncarlos Miller, Grimsley's principal, said he found out about the possible protest Thursday.

He said Eastern counties were most likely to be affected on Monday and the cold conditions would reach a peak on Tuesday. Conditions are expected to remain mainly dry through until Friday and will then begin to worsen over the weekend .

"Most of the students went back to class, knowing this was not what they wanted and that there would be repercussions", Phillips said.

The Fulton district has 104 schools and about 97,000 students.

Would the same be true for students who participate in classroom walkouts? Rose said the district also counts on the local municipalities' law enforcement agencies to help police schools. Sometimes civil disobedience - challenging the rules on matters of conscience and policy - is justifiable.

Bailey was only the first walkout on Friday. They then observed 17 minutes of silence. The students have also set up an Instagram account at @nhs_protest. "We're saying we should get rid of excessive guns".

"I want schools to feel safer, people to feel safe going to school and getting an education".

Perhaps Needville ISD Superintendent Curtis Rhodes will consider such a "teaching moment".

- Meeting with staff members and students to listen, problem-solve and implement action steps, and will continue to meet and work together throughout the school year to improve.

"She doesn't have all the answers and neither does her friends because they are 14, but they realize even at that young age (that) something has to be done", said parent Lenora Garza. "A disruption of the school will not be tolerated..."
