Default Ohio student suspended for staying in class during National Walkout Day

"Be a part of our retarded political protest or be suspended!"

Why are we allowing schools to be inundated with politics? Judging by graduation rates and the intelligence levels of some of these kids, they need every minute of class time they can get.

Ohio student suspended for staying in class during National Walkout Day

An Ohio high school student said he tried to stay apolitical during the National Walkout Day over gun violence but was suspended for his choice to remain in a classroom instead of joining protests or the alternative, going to study hall.

Jacob Shoemaker, a senior at Hilliard Davidson High School, said he didn’t want to take sides in the gun-control debate consuming the country. If he went outside for the walkout, he said, he would be supporting gun control. If he stayed in the common area of the school, he said, he would be seen as supporting gun violence and disrespecting the 17 lives lost in the Parkland, Fla. High school shooting the month before.

Jacob had met with the school’s principal on Tuesday, a day before the rally, for about an hour to find out what exactly the walkout was supporting. But he said the principal reportedly told him it was for the “students to express themselves.”

This left Jacob wondering if it was a memorial for the lives lost or a show of support for gun control.

He decided, instead, to stay in class for about 20 minutes doing homework after his teacher and fellow classmates left and locked the door.

When they returned, he was slapped with a suspension.

Jacob’s father, Scott Shoemaker, said his son was just trying to stay neutral – and did nothing wrong.

“Politics [doesn’t] belong in the school,” he said. “Students shouldn’t be pressured into taking a side.”

The story went viral after Jacob sent a photo of his out-of-school suspension citation to one of his friends, who posted it on social media.

The school, as well as the Shoemakers, have received death threats and hate messages.

Scott Shoemaker said his son was just trying to be introspective – and he wasn’t acting out.

“He didn’t do anything to deserve this,” he said. “He didn’t ask for this.”

The district says it's responsible for students' safety and they can't be unsupervised.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

It sounds like he should have went to Study Hall like he was instructed, where he could have been supervised instead of staying in a class by himself.

Sounds like schools should leave political activism outta the classroom. They're there to learn; not become lib fuq-tards.

Why should he be expected to leave the normal classroom simply because others in the classroom walked out? Was the teacher not supervising the classroom as would be expected?

It sounds like the faculty were participating and it was school sanctioned. This is a normal thing. Kids are taken out of classrooms all the time to participate in assembly's and other stuff. Just because you disagree with the message doesn't make it somehow wrong. The kid should have just gone to study hall.

This national walkout crap was just an excuse for moron teens to skip class and act like twat-tards.

Chicago students allegedly trash Walmart during National School Walkout protest

Quote:
About 60 students from a Chicago high school used their time during the National School Walkout protest to wreak havoc at a Walmart, witnesses say -- and police are investigating.

Walmart shoppers and store employees were stunned by the destruction allegedly inflicted by Simeon Career Academy students Wednesday morning, FOX 32 reported.

“These guys jacked up our store pretty good,” one Walmart employee told conservative news site The Red Elephants. “They pounced on cars in the lot, vandalized two of the school buses parked there, threw Gatorade bottles at shoppers, smoke bombs, and we heard gun shots in the parking lot.”

Police are trying to identify between 40 to 60 students who took the five-minute walk from the school and allegedly trashed parts of the store, knocking over product displays, yanking items off the shelves, breaking packages, and stealing small items such as chips and candy.

“We are very concerned that a walkout intended to promote peace instead led to vandalism and violence,” a Chicago Public Schools spokesperson said in a statement.

That's a copout...

A teacher should've been REQUIRED to do their actual job and stay in that classroom with the student instead of leaving their actual job to play activist on taxpayer time...

My daughter had a walkout at her school. They all whent to the football field and had a few minutes of silence for the kids that were murdered and then whent back to class.

I'm glad there were teachers involved and around to direct the kids into something positive instead of just letting them wander off campus and into a walmart. And not only that, it is a teachable moment. Activism, teaching kids to be active in their community's and showing them that they can make meaningful positive changes is a very good lesson.

These kids all around the country are the future, I'm really proud of them. Maybe they will be able to solve this whole gun issue when it's their turn and their country to run.

They never let students walk out of class for a protest when I was a kid in school. What kind of political rallies did they let you out of class for when you was a kid?
