A nationwide school walkout has been set for March 14 in the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Fl.
The Los Angeles United School District has responded with its policy for the planned walkout.
The district is asking parents to discourage their children from leaving the campus. Instead, it wants schools to honor the victims of the shooting by staging on-campus activities for students to participate in at 10:00 a.m. on March 14 for 17 minutes.
What do you think of LAUSD’s policy? If you are a LAUSD parent, how would you talk to your kids about the walkout? Are you in favor of your kids joining the walk out?
