Why One Student Isn't Walking Out

by Jeff Veley | Love Changes It All - Special Feature

Today, many students across America will leave their classrooms at 10 am to demand change when it comes to guns and school safety.  In talking with educators, parents, and community members about National School Walkout Day, some believe this demonstration will do nothing, saying that it shows the entitlement of students who think they can do what they want, when they want.  Others see it as a powerful demonstration of students banding together with a common goal.  There are times where protesting, marching, and the like have been effective.  The real question is, “Will this be effective in creating  a change in school safety?”.

Comment and let me know your thoughts below.

I wanted to share a powerful story of a student who will not be walking out and he has a very good reason why.
