Youth Activism: Walkouts, Protests & Perspectives on Responding

Presented by LTC 4550 Critical Space Projects:
Matt Jahnke, Emilee Madlinger, Samantha Moody-Walker, Paige Lankford, & Emily Lee

Students are becoming more increasingly involved in political affairs and it seems many school districts don’t know how to respond. The First Amendment protects students’ rights within the schoolhouse gates, but does that mean the Administration must condone disruptions to the academic schedule? What qualifies as a disruption? What kind of protests, if any, are encouraged/supported/allowed?

We hope to provide an open forum discussion with a few experts to share their views and opinions to facilitate an environment of 
understanding and compassion to minimize misunderstandings in the future.
