This will leave some ‘skulls full of mush’ spinning. How could they?
Isn’t school supposed to be for learning how to be an activist?
Seeing the endless crop of nutty stories coming out of colleges, you might like to think so. But in Texas? Well, they do things just a little differently.
Ditching school to join a protest? Using the kids to prop up your political event?
(Related: Doug Giles has a couple of strong opinions about politicizing kids to push a political agenda.)
Not in Texas. Not on this campus.
That’ll land you a three-day suspension in this school.
With any luck, the idea might catch on. Who knows… graduates might even finish school with a mastery of the subjects being taught!
What a novel idea!
Here was Needville Superintendent Curtis Rhodes’s letter:
The Needville ISD is very sensitive to violence in schools including the recent incident in Florida. Anytime an individual deliberately chooses to harm others, we are sensitive and compassionate to those impacted. There is a “movement” attempting to stage walkouts/disruptions of the school through social media and/or other media outlets.
Please be advised that the Needville ISD will not allow a student demonstration during school hours for any type of protest or awareness!! Should students choose to do so, they will be suspended from school for 3 days and face all the consequences that come along with an out of school suspension. Life is all about choices and every choice has a consequence whether it be positive or negative. We will discipline no matter if it is one, fifty, or five hundred students involved. All will be suspended for 3 days and parent notes will not alleviate the discipline.
A school is a place to learn and grow educationally, emotionally and morally. A disruption of school will not be tolerated.
Respect yourself, your fellow students and the Needville Independent School District and please understand that we are here for an education and not a political protest.
It seems like the majority of Texans are blessed with an ability to cut through the crap and hit the real issues in a rational way and have been since… well, forever.
They’re badasses that believe in God, hard work, the right to bear arms, and personal responsibility.
God Bless Texas!
Don’t you wish that everyone in the U.S. was educated with basic Texan Common Sense?
They’d be much better educated than the students at Yale which has become more of a parody of what ‘education’ means.
The formerly well-respected Yale which was founded in 1701 has gone full progressive.
Never go full progressive.
Looks like the fundamental right of freedom of speech and expression is subject to these people’s hurt feelings.
Can you imagine that kind of crap going on in Texas?
You know why?
Because Texans are graduates of Yall University — proudly established in 1836.
Don’t worry — all y’all can stick it to Yale and wear this awesome Yall University shirt. #TexanPride
