ESU students organizing rally, march for "sensible gun reform"

FPS Students Demand Action

The National School Walkout was started by Lane Murdoch, a 16-year-old who grew up in CT just a few miles from Sandy Hook Elementary School - where 20 students were killed in a mass shooting in 2012.

San Bernardino: CTA Secretary-Treasurer David Goldberg will join students and educators at Arroyo Valley High School for an assembly and student-led walkout honoring gun violence victims and calling for action. On March 14, students walked out of class for the #Enough!

Nationally, students also have organized meetings with lawmakers and called for boycotts against companies that partner with the National Rifle Association.

Fremont: Teachers and students will stage a "walk-in" in solidarity at American High School.

Students in the Kansas City area, like their peers across the country, expect to make another loud plea for broader gun control in the United States. On March 20, to observe the anniversary, approximately 120 students from North Caroline High School gathered on the athletic field for 17 minutes, and three students from Colonel Richardson High School met in the auditorium for 17 minutes. It's a matter of safety, said John Schuster, spokesman for Miami-Dade schools. "School principals in Osceola County have been and will continue to meet with their student leaders to discuss appropriate avenues to communicate their messages with influential leaders instead of activities that take away instructional time". They are not endorsed by the schools or district.

According to a press release, Saturday's Coachella performance was the "impetus" to mark Beyoncé's new scholarship program. She also hopes that it will encourage young kids to enroll in our incredible HIstorically Black Colleges and Universities.

This isn't a conclusive list; some of the schools might not actually participate. Students who miss class will be addressed through the district attendance program.

"We do not anticipate large participation as seen in the past due to the fact many of our students are in the midst of testing as the school year is winding down".

"A lot of people don't really know about the Columbine shooting because it didn't happen when they were alive", Caruso says. A "Walkout Planning Guide" at the National School Walkout website gives some ideas for how students involved with the protest can spend their day, like voter registration drives or letter writing campaigns, but the open-ended nature of the protest, according to Murdock is meant to reflect the fact that the walkout is meant to focus on kids.

The message has spread to other schools across the country, leading some to question whether they should participate in the national walkout, creating confusion even among students at Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where the most recent school shooting massacre claimed 17 lives in February.
