Texas School District Will Suspend Kids Who Leave Class To Protest Florida Shooting
A Texas school district says it will suspend any student that takes part in walkouts or protests during school hours. “We are here for an education and not a political protest.”
We hate to see these kids being exploited by the left to further their own agenda. They should be in counseling rather than demanding changes in our laws. If they want to protest they should do so on their own time.
The adults are in charge in Texas…
“We are here for an education and not a political protest.” That’s is the message from Needville ISD Superintendent Curtis Rhodes Tuesday in response to a call by political groups for students to walk out of class to protest gun issues in the wake of the Florida school shooting.
In a post on Facebook, Rhodes said, “A school is a place to learn and grow educationally, emotionally and morally. A disruption will not be tolerated.”
Rhodes said that students who walk out of class — or disrupt school — to protest current gun laws face a possible suspension. “They will be suspended from school for three days and face all the consequences that come along with an out of school suspension.”
“The Needville ISD is very sensitive to violence in schools including the recent incident in Florida,” Rhodes continued in the post. “Anytime an individual deliberately chooses to harm others, we are sensitive and compassionate to those impacted.” More
Here is the entire post:
The Needville ISD is very sensitive to violence in schools including the recent incident in Florida. Anytime an individual deliberately chooses to harm others, we are sensitive and compassionate to those impacted. There is a “movement” attempting to stage walkouts/disruptions of the school through social media and/or other media outlets.
Please be advised that the Needville ISD will not allow a student demonstration during school hours for any type of protest or awareness!! Should students choose to do so, they will be suspended from school for 3 days and face all the consequences that come along with an out of school suspension. Life is all about choices and every choice has a consequence whether it be positive or negative. We will discipline no matter if it is one, fifty, or five hundred students involved. All will be suspended for 3 days and parent notes will not alleviate the discipline.
A school is a place to learn and grow educationally, emotionally and morally. A disruption of the school will not be tolerated.
Respect yourself, your fellow students and the Needville Independent School District and please understand that we are here for an education and not a political protest.
