ACLU reminds schools to honor students' rights to take part in walkout

ACLU Urges Harford Co. Schools Against Disciplining Students Who Take Part In Walkout

"We want to let the students know their rights". Luckily, many colleges took to Twitter to assure students that they won't hold today's protest against them when making admissions decisions.

The ACLU Kentucky is urging school district officials to allow students to participate in a national walkout against gun violence on Wednesday without fear of discipline.

In an open letter to school districts on Monday, Gatnarek amd ACLU Kentucky Interim Legal Director Amy Cubbage asked educators to give students space and access to express themselves. "We applaud those school administrators who have already taken steps to protect their students' First Amendment rights and to ensure that students can exercise their right to protest safely".

The Enough National School Walkout has been organized by Women's March Youth Empower, a collection of teenage activist from across the country. The group recommends that students study their school's policies on protests and then try to work with the school to create a protest that makes their message heard loud and clear without the risk of suspension.

Do students have First Amendment rights in school? "Our staff and principals have been reaching out to student leaders and parents in the community to coordinate and organize around March 14th's student action". Colleges have also followed suit, with U.C. Berkeley tweeting: "We fully support your right to peacefully protest, and would never refuse your admittance for doing so. Signed, the home of free speech".

The Constitution prohibits school officials from punishing students more harshly for participating in walkouts or off-campus protests than for any other goal.

Students at Aztec High School will be holding a walk up to hep unify their campus as students there heal from a deadly school shooting past year.

"Because the law in most places requires students to go to school, schools can discipline you for missing class", according to ACLU. Cal. Educ. Code § 48900.

Jeff Francis, head of the Vermont Superintendents Association, said he didn't know of any schools that were taking a hostile approach to tomorrow's planned demonstrations. Cal. Educ. Code § 48900 (w). They are telling the Harford County Public School District not to punish students who leave school grounds on Wednesday any harsher than they would for any other unexcused absence. This publication is available at https://www.myschoolmyrights.com/school-discipline/.

"Some schools have attempted to extend their power to punish students even for off-campus, online posts", ACLU reports.

Students can not be punished, Weinberg said in the letter, for wearing shirts, armbands, or clothes that proclaim political viewpoints. Some, however, have suggested that students might face negative consequences for disrupting a normal day of education.

"Administrators...are working with students and want them to learn from this event", he said.

"We recognize that this is a hard time for schools but also that this is an important opportunity to teach students about civic engagement and civil discourse", said Weinberg. Students will inevitably have different opinions about civic and political issues.
