A Superintendent Who Acts Like An Adult (How Seemingly Rare!)

Kids need to be in class, not "emoting" all over the place:
A Texas school district is threatening to suspend students who protest gun violence during school hours as “walkouts” among young activists take place nationwide.

Curtis Rhodes, Superintendent of Needville Independent School District, stated in a letter posted to Facebook and reportedly sent home to students on Tuesday that while the school district “is very sensitive to violence in schools including the recent incident in Florida,” the district “will not allow a student demonstration during school hours for any type of protest or awareness!!”

If students do choose to protest, the school district said they'll suspend them for three days, and they’ll “face all the consequences that come along with an out of school suspension.”
Kids, protest on your own time, when the taxpayer isn't paying for your education.

Back in our day (1981) my high school was famous for several things, including have the air conditioner dead at the beginning of the year. August in southern Louisiana, AC is not a luxury. Well, 400 students decided to walk out. And...400 parents got phone calls that afternoon, their kids were suspended for 3 days.

Our principal, Flo Riviette, took s$%^ off of no one!

Mike, you used to tell me about taking rifles to school for marksmanship in PE class.
