Discussion continues about the events at Paso Robles highs school last week during the national walk out for gun safety. Students took video of fights which occurred during the noon hour. The videos shown on local TV, but superintendent Chris Williams says those altercations were not related to the demonstration.
Progressive students say they were denied the opportunity to walk out because of mandatory assemblies which changed their schedule.
Conservative students say they were assaulted and continue to be threatened by other students. Conservative club president Justin is scheduled to be on sound off tomorrow afternoon.
The superintendent banned media from the event, except for one local newspaper. The Paso Robles Press reports that principal Eric Martinez says, “I think it went really well.” He makes no mention of any of the fights caught on video. He says, “Overall, I think it was very successful.”
The coverage by the newspaper conflicts with reports from students, the videos, and reports in other media, but the Paso Robles Press was the only media allowed at the high school during the national walkout for gun safety.
