0311_”Teachers’ Unions Support Student Walkouts As Protest To Change Gun Laws” By Dr. Susan berry — another effort from the Left (who have great control over most of our schools) to destabilize our country.

I have witnessed since my first child went to school around 1975, that the schools have been used as Change Agents – to mold our country into a socialist paradise [which is an oxymoron (a combination of contradictory or incongruous words)]. One of the first things socialist governments do as they take over is to confiscate all guns.

This walk-out today is a continuation of the efforts of the Left to take away all guns.

The schools in my part of Colorado carried out this “walk-out” tactic during school hours, to use students to give the impression that the students were rising up — because they wanted the majority of 3 republicans on the school district school board to be recalled.  Once again, it was controlled and orchestrated by the school unions.  Unions pressured teachers, and teachers pressured students into marching.  Teachers called in”sick” and did not come to school.  This put a huge burden on the school district.  Students didn’t know why they were marching, except for sound bites told to them by their teachers.

You will find that this is the case today as well.  One friend told today, that her son’s teacher told his English class that they had to protest today.  The peer pressure alone is going to empty the schools — kids don’t like to be singled out – and they don’t want to be punished with low grades, or other methods of punishment used in the classrooms.

A quote from the end of the article below:

“Asking them to disrupt learning time, during the regular school day, to make a political statement is unconscionable,” she adds. “It shows what little regard national organizers actually have for the students whose individual schools they hope to destabilize or for the adults who are charged with running them.”

 “Teachers’ Unions Support Student Walkouts As Protest To Change Gun Laws”
By Dr. Susan Berry

 Excerpts from this article:

 Teachers unions at the state and national levels are supporting what they say are student-driven protests demanding changes to the Second Amendment since the Parkland, Florida, shooting that claimed the lives of 17 people.

Union officials, however, are advising teachers to be cautious about ensuring their support for the students – from over 2,500 schools that are participating in a “student walkout” Wednesday to promote gun control – is provided as private citizens.

 While urging its members to “avoid any suggestion that they are speaking in their official capacity or on behalf of their local school district,” Oklahoma Education Association (OEA), for example, says the National Education Association (NEA) and its state affiliates support this “inspired movement” by students.

 “Thoughts and prayers will not prevent the next tragedy,” said NEA President Lily Eskelsen García. “People rising up will.”

 In the wake of the horrific shooting in Broward County, Florida, a column at NEA Todaytouted: “There’s a new face on the age-old gun debate: our students, and they won’t be silenced. They are demanding that the adults in power keep them safe and they will not stand by and allow elected officials to fail them any longer.”

 

 “The dominant call for action tied to the national walkout is for stricter gun laws, including a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and expanded background checks for prospective gun-buyers,” writes Denisa R. Superville at Education Week. “Inspired by the activism of a small, but vocal group of student survivors from Stoneman Douglas, students across the U.S. have already staged dozens of walkouts in the weeks since the Feb. 14 mass shooting.”

 

American Federation of Teachers (AFT) president Randi Weingarten tweeted her praise for union member Katrina Kickbush, who testified at a Senate Democrat hearing that focused on gun violence and strengthening the nation’s gun laws:

…Parents who have been battling against federal intrusion in education say the organized student walkout is part of the progressive agenda.

Ohio parent activist Heidi Huber tells Breitbart News the walkout “has nothing to do with keeping kids safe in school.”

“What better setup for another tragedy, than to announce when there will be hundreds of children – yes, children – allowed by school authorities to leave the safety of their secure classrooms and exit to the unsecured outside campus?” she asks.

“Couple that with the left’s righteous claim of exercising First Amendment rights – wait for it – to protest the existence of Second Amendment rights,” Huber adds. “And while you attempt to square that position, the voice of the ‘reasonable’ continue to proclaim that a 15-17 year-old is mature enough to determine that an 18-21 year-old is not mature enough to own a firearm.”

Huber observes “the weight of the irony is completely lost” as those in charge of schools and the media have lost “the art of critical thinking.”

“Unfortunately, so has a generation of American children,” she says.

Indiana parent activist Heather Crossin tells Breitbart News the student walkouts are an example that the “radical left has stooped to a new low with this latest stunt of using minors to fight their battles.”

“Asking them to disrupt learning time, during the regular school day, to make a political statement is unconscionable,” she adds. “It shows what little regard national organizers actually have for the students whose individual schools they hope to destabilize or for the adults who are charged with running them.”
