New Prague school criticized for banning pro-gun sign during protest

Posted March 17, 2018

Ogungbemi said seeing the students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas on the news talking about the experience inspired her and the other students to use their own voices to make change.

The students held signs and chanted.

However, this was not the case in other high schools where students were suspended or prevented from walking out of the classrooms Wednesday.

At some schools, hundreds of students poured out. The students there simply memorialized the victims by tying 17 balloons to a flag pole and giving speeches during the 17-minute span. "But this is not the world I want to live in. That being said I would imagine the majority of the students really didn't understand or know why they were out there", Howard said.

School walkout

Some adult community members joined in, carrying signs that read "We are listening" and "I care about your safety and will resist the NRA".

Students were happy with the level of turnout for a small school.

Schools even went so far as to bar their gates and lock students in. "So, how can we take our spiritual mission at York Catholic and translate that into something that will be powerful for our entire student body". "That's what we're going to look at when we're monitoring this".

But, in pretty much every case, their efforts were guided or controlled by school officials (although a few students did break ranks, walk out and now face discipline). Some led marches or rallied on football fields, while others gathered in school gyms or took a knee in the hallway.

Noah Pasley, a senior at Highlands Ranch High, wants to support school safety but doesn't want to limit the rights of Americans, he said. I like seeing kids getting involved, especially when it's about something that impacts them.
