First amendment rights usurped?

My son is an eighth grade student at Thurston, like many of his fellow students he felt duped by the school administration. He felt that his 1st amendment rights were usurped by the school administration, which controlled the walk outs by turning it into an extended break, run by the school administration. The intended message, to honor the 17 dead students and seek change in gun laws that would make kids like him safer was muted.

Our children’s’ rights need to be respected and “their” voices heard.
