Gov. Andrew Cuomo asked state education officials Thursday to overturn any disciplinary action taken against students who participated in the mass walkout against gun violence.
“In the last 24 hours, there have been several reports of New York State schools disciplining students and faculty for participating in yesterday’s historic events to stop gun violence. In at least one disturbing incident, it was reported that the school physically blocked the exits to prevent students from demonstrating,” Cuomo said in a letter to state Education Commissioner Mary Ellen Elia.

Free speech means walking out of school for any reason? This is what happens when children are put in charge.
The Florida shooting occurred in part because the thugs on the left wouldn’t create a record of discipline against a kid for his violent misbehavior in school or for his threats against that school. Socialists didn’t want to feed into the “school to prison pipeline”. No record, no impediment to buying a gun, even for a nutcase who should under the laws they pushed for have been barred from buying a gun.
We already know what happens when you tell kids they are so special that rules don’t apply to them. What kind of fool would continue following that strategy?
That's what he's saying, but of course, he doesn't really mean it. "Free speech" means that the state's employees and its school inmates turn out for party-approved events, just like in Cuba or North Korea.
A teacher in (iirc) California was suspended for raising the question of whether the school administration would support a student walkout to protest abortion.
We now have snowflake parents who have no concept of having to work or fight for anything. Their kids are supposed to walk out of class with no consequences? What's that teaching them? They and their kiddies are being manipulated and played by entities that have everything but freedom, safety, and the interests of their useful idiots at heart.
This first got out of hand with Black Lives Matter, ginning up useful idiots to demand an agenda that is not their own. It's Obama's hand....community organizing.
PS: You don't see folks in real danger zones marching to have their right to protect themselves taken away.
I’ll say it again, schools and police scoff at the Fourth Amendment when it comes to warrantless, suspicionless dragnet locker sniffs and searches. Let them explain why the First Amendment was so much more important for them, on that day and time, that it superseded going to class.
Suspend, and grade zeros for the day. Any teachers that participated should also be suspended, if not fired.
Wish somebody would rearrange this punk thug’s arrogant face.
IS THAT EVEN LEGAL IN NY???
But it is not disturbing to lefty Cuomo that mindless pre college school children are used as pawns by the left wing."
The teachers and the school administrators organize and direct it.
The children are not capable of doing it on their own.
It’s Soros’s hand....community organizing.
Bankrolled and directed lock, stock and barrel by Soros.
Look on the front page of the NY Tabloids, there was Prince Andrew right in the gutter with the rest of the NYDemos. What an asshat he is. Total Soros Acolytes!
Then they should all be summarily fired. As long as this nonsense continues without consequences, these little tin-horn fascists will keep pushing the envelope further.
Get a grip dude.
Which state has the biggest idiot as governor?
California or New York?
This is what happens when seditionists and communists are put in charge.
It is a competition.
Rosa Parks was just a sham from the start. Someone else actually beat Rosa to the punch, but was rejected, due to not being as photogenic.
Just out of curiosity, aren’t schools paid out of federal funds based on the number of students in class every day?
If a school conspires to fraudulently count students who are not in class but protesting on the street as in class to fraudulently get federal funds, aren’t they committing a federal crime?
Let’s face it. He wants to run for President in 2020 and is setting himself up. Nothing else.
