The West Bend School District can be proud that it is in solidarity with the Madison districts.
On March 14, high school students around the country plan to walk out of their classrooms to demand more restrictive gun laws.
In Madison, after walking out of school, many students plan to keep walking to the state Capitol for a rally. While the walkout is not sponsored or endorsed by any school districts, several officials are announcing their respect for the students’ right to protest and are allowing parents and guardians to excuse absences.
“We are incredibly proud of the young people, both nationally and here in Madison, who have raised their voices about gun control and their right to be safe at school. Our district stands with our students as they demand action,” said Jennifer Cheatham, superintendent of the Madison Metropolitan School District.
Clearly, using kids as props to advance a leftist agenda takes priority over education.
