One Texas school is sticking to their guns, metaphorically speaking.
Needville High School has a policy that should any student walk out during the middle of class “they will be suspended from school for 3 days and face all consequences that come along with an out of school suspension.”
The statement continued, “Life is all about choices and every choice has a consequence […] We will discipline no matter if it is 1, 50, or 500.”
The high school posted this statement because it was rumored a walk out was scheduled to occur show support for gun control policies after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
NBC reports, “Students at Needville High School in Texas are being warned that if they participate in anti-gun protests during school hours, they will be given a three-day suspension. KPRC’s Rose-Ann Aragon reports.”
The Texas high school also stated, “we strongly encourage you to show your support for the students in Florida in ways that won’t disrupt the school day…”
The school plans to “work with you to find productive ways to make meaningful change through other methods of support, like reaching out to lawmakers.”
