San Luis Obispo county schools preparing for a potential student walkout and protest against gun violence this Wednesday. That’s one month after a disturbed young man shot up a high school in Florida, killing 17 students and teachers. The security guard stood outside the building for four minutes listening to the gun fire.
San Luis school administration saying they’re going to allow the students 17 minutes to protest and speak about the shooting. Plans are less defined in the Atascadero school districts. Paso Robles school superintendent Chris Williams issues a statement saying in part….
We are not recommending a school walk-out as noting the date, time, and place of a walk-out actually creates opportunity for a potentially unsafe environment for a number of reasons. Rather, students and families that wish to participate in protests are encouraged to do so at planned events such as one on March 24 in San Luis Obispo, where law enforcement is present and safe routes have been established for participant activities.
That’s the message from superintendent Chris Williams. Before Williams became a teacher, he sold used cars in Fresno.
