Texas School District Bans Gun Control Protests During Class

Amid events by various political action groups calling for students to walk out of classes and protest for stricter gun control following the Parkland, Florida, shooting, one Texas school district said students will not be permitted to participate on their campuses and if they do, they will be suspended for three days.

The Needville Independent School District posted a statement from Superintendent Curtis Rhodes on the Needville High School page. He called school “a place to learn and grow educationally, emotionally, and morally.” Rhodes added that they will not tolerate disruptions.

“The Needville ISD is very sensitive to violence in schools including the recent incident in Florida,” but it will “not allow a student demonstration during school hours for any type of protest or awareness!!,” wrote Rhodes, adding that “anytime an individual chooses to harm others, we are sensitive and compassionate to those impacted.”

“There is a ‘movement’ attempting to stage walkouts/disruptions of the school through social media and/or other media outlets,” noted the superintendent. He added, “Should students choose to do so, they will be suspended from school for three days and face all the consequences that come along with an out of school suspension.”

The post continues on to say that life is about choices “and every choice has a consequence whether it be positive or negative.” Rhodes advised the school district will discipline regardless of whether one, 50, or 500 students choose to walk out of class and protest by suspending them for three days. He added that a parent’s note will not be accepted to “alleviate the discipline.”

Rhodes closed his statement by telling students to “respect yourself, your fellow students, and the Needville Independent School District and please understand that we are here for an education and not a political protest.”

Needville is located roughly 60 miles southwest of Houston.

    I am impressed.
    Perfectly said “we are here for an education and not a political protest.”

    That should be the stand of all school officials. This will be a good test to see what school districts are serious about our kids education and who are not!

    finally an adult speaks to truth..if all school officials were this smart and looking out for the students this country and the out come of the students would fare for the better…at this time the passions are running high understood..but the young people do not fully understand the truth about the gun issue and the mental issue that is behind the shootings..banning guns will not solve that problem… the ball got dropped by upper officials,, school.fbi and maybe local police….there was warning to help prevent this horror……learn from this and stop this kind of tragedy before it happens again

    Lmao.
    ‘ independent school district’
    In other words, continuing ed. Schools that pass out GED’s to failing and troubled kids. NOT unified school districts.
    Meaningless.
