While I certainly agree with the high school students right to protest & to peaceful assembly, I cannot support them walking out on their school day. Especially as many of them were walking out on assigned exams, which of course will have to be rescheduled at a later date. That being said, it was good to let students know about governance & the fact that they have the right to protest the educational system & any cutbacks that they see as unjustified. What they should have done is marched after school, or say on a Saturday or Sunday. If they had done this, more people would have noticed their message.
