Hunterdon Central Students Plan Walk-Out Protest

07 March 2018

Is the only objective of school "to ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to take credit bearing introductory courses in two- or four-year college programs or enter the workforce", or can school also become a place where students learn how they want to treat themselves, each other, and their world?

Egan sent a letter to NCHS families in late February to inform them about the expected participation by some students in the National School Walkout.

In a statement, law firm managing partner Theodore Berman said he was outraged by the nature of the attack.

"I'm anxious a black and brown boy running down the hall like anybody else to get to safety reaches in his pocket to pull out his cell phone could be mistaken for shooter".

Eleanor Tritt, superintendent at the Amagansett School, said on Monday that she and the School Board are looking into hiring a security guard for the 2018-19 school year to supplement ongoing safety drills, which are staged as many as 15 times each year.

The NCHS walkout was originally planned to take place on the high school's front lawn, but an organizer said it was likely to be moved to the football field. "We want to make this as meaningful as we can for them".

A nationwide walkout is scheduled for March 14 at 10 a.m.

DE 105.9's Rob Petree reached out to other school districts in Sussex County who have yet to respond with an official statement as to what they plan to do regarding the protest.

"Stephen Hall, chief communications officer for Springfield Public Schools, said the issue of school safety is incredibly important, timely and complex".

"Will [the protests] be a topic of conversation?"

On Tuesday, Schenone said Scott stood by his stance that he doesn't think teachers should be armed. Maybe if students learn how to accept feelings of frustration, fear and embarrassment, they won't need to avoid those feelings by hurting themselves or someone else.

A legal expert with OSPI also said special exceptions are made for students with an IEP (Individualized Education Program).

On Monday, Ed Tyll, host of the Ed Tyll Show from Noon to 3 p.m. on DE 105.9, received several calls from parents concerned over the prospective protests, listen here. But, after hearing from Doyle's group, that was never a question this time. The Amagansett School's estimated security budget of about $72,000 for next year of its nearly $11 million overall budget will be used to pay the security guard. While the walkouts have become more common across the country as its reels from another school massacre, there has been pushback from some administrators.

The shootings also hit home for Carlomagno, who grew up in Broward County, Fla., where Parkland is located.

While some schools are open to supporting their students as they take 17 minutes, other schools believe students should remain in their classrooms. Although the 16-year-old girl can't yet vote, she still wants politicians to know she has something to say.
