I’m proud of all of the teachers and security personnel supervising the student walkout against gun violence today. Our youth’s voices need to be heard and we must do everything we can to create a safe learning environment for them. Our teachers should only have to focus on teaching, students should be learning, and police resource officers should provide security. Today our students demonstrated an excellent exercise of free speech and I couldn’t be more proud of them. Let’s listen to our youth and create a world where walkouts against violence no longer need to happen.
