On Tuesday, Needville, Texas school Superintendent Curtis Rhodes announced plans to administer disciplinary punishment for any student who participates in the rising number of protests in the wake of the Florida Parkland high school shooting.
“We will discipline no matter if it is one, fifty, or five hundred students involved,” Rhodes stated.
Any student who participates faces up to 3 days of out-of-school suspension.
Multiple national protests are coming up in the months ahead, including the ‘March of Our Lives’ on March 24 and ‘National School Walkout’ on April 20 on the 19th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado.
This past week, students in Florida have protested in favor of stricter gun reforms and while Rhodes stated that the school district understands the sensitive issue, school policy will not tolerate any political protests.
