I can see the slippery slope now. Every time students want to protest something, we will close our schools down. Let me see, if the school lunches are not what we get at home, we will march in protest. If teachers try to teach class while we are text messaging, we will march in protest. An illegal alien was sent back to his home country, we will march in protest. Shall I go on, or does my message get across?
The school system should not get involved in local, national or world politics; and local politics should not get involved with school, national or world politics. As a wise person once told me, "solve your own problems before you take on the world's problems."
