While I am glad that there are still informed and rational kids in our schools, this is not the way to go about it. For one, the MSM will NOT cover it as it does not fit their narrative. (Proof, this is the first I've heard of it).

But the other thing is that kids should not be using the school system to voice political positions. I agree with the message, but I disagree that they should be walking out of school for it. Breaking rules to voice your opinion is wrong.

I applaud the kids for what they doing and the schools for allowing an opposing walkout. But at the same time schools shouldn't be allowing students for walk out for political protests, because where does it end? At most the media will give it a token mention so they can falsely claim they aren't biased.
"There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”—Theodore Roosevelt
