Yet, it’s very clear this isn’t an isolated incident. Thousands of schools thought it was cool to make their students walkout for gun control, in events in many cases orchestrated or precipitated by the schools themselves. Schools should not be involved in politics like this.
Via Daily Caller:
A Hampton Middle School teacher in Georgia told his students to write letters to Congress asking lawmakers to enact stricter gun control laws.
“You are trying to persuade lawmakers to have stricter gun laws to help prevent another school shooting from taking place,” the assignment read, according to Fox News. “For this assignment, you are writing a letter to the lawmakers of the United States. The purpose of this letter is to pressure lawmakers to have stricter gun laws in the United States.”
Blue Lives Matter secured a copy of the assignment from a police officer whose son was one of the students, Fox News reported.
“I asked him what he had for homework that night, and he said he had to write a paper on gun control,” William Lee told Blue Lives Matter. “I looked at it, and I told my son, ‘No, you’re not doing that assignment.’ Then I emailed his teacher the next day and told him that my son would not be writing that.”
