Area student unhappy with Wednesday's school walkout

Chicago students add budget cuts school closings to gun control agenda Chicago students participate in Wednesday's nationwide walkout

Stoneman Douglas students have organized a March 24 "March For Our Lives" in Washington, D.C., and another march in Parkland on the same date.

Students were upset and angry as they called for change.

A Minnesota student holding a "Guns don't kill people, people kill people" sign was allegedly escorted off school property by the institution's principal and threatened with arrest.

But some students said they wouldn't settle for silence.

"This wasn't the way I wanted my son to become an activist, but you know what?" Ryker Meetze, student council president, said the tree showed students there are lots of ways to be kind and could also give them ideas of how they could be better to others in school and in the community. "I just want people to take care of each other and watch out for each other more often".

The Harford County public school superintendent also forbade students from leaving claiming safety concerns.

Students at Pascagoula High School walked out of class on Wednesday morning.

Last week, school administrators told students that they would be allowed to walk out of school and use the time to remember the victims of the Parkland shooting. Students held signs that said, "Arm our teachers" they had two signs.

MAHS, Lombardi said, is a good example of school safety. "There were a handful of students who just made the wrong choices". "I'm so glad the kids have found their voices and I'm so glad it's what's buoying them, because this isn't easy for them", Rosemarie said.

"Seventeen minutes is a long time, but 17 victims is far too many", DeVries said. The movement involved 3,000 schools around the United States and was one of the biggest moments of activism for students. "That's what we're going to look at when we're monitoring this". Metz said he had nearly no prior notice of the walkout, but administrators wanted to ensure students were safe as they exercised their right to protest.

The demonstration was organized Tuesday night by teacher Sarah Grieger and student Austin Keranen.

A student posted these videos of the outburst.

In Lander, 75-100 students gathered for speeches. It was supposed to be about kids amplifying their voices, taking control of their lives.

Individual school's responses to the walkouts on their campuses ranged from threatening to suspend students who participate, to full support. "I'm so inspired by the hundreds of students who said "Never Again" to gun violence", he said.

"Hurt people hurt people", Jefferson said.

Student speakers talked about the desire for change in gun laws, but also about the importance of mental health help and showing kindness to fellow classmates.

At South High, students demonstrated outside behind the school. One protest organizer, senior Jade Keene, says she's expecting an in-school suspension. "We were all scared that everyone was being killed, because people were throwing desks to barricade and it sounded like gunshots", North Bend student Olivia Funk said. "I'm glad that we did this".
