We’ve never known of a student walkout that changed anything, but these students think what they’re doing will make a difference in what they think are problems- whether they are or not.
“Students across the state of Minnesota are planning on walking out of school today, April 19, to protest the killing of Daunte Wright, racism, white supremacy and ‘the militarization of [the] state,'” according to The College Fix.
“According to Alpha News, middle and high schools will participate based on posts on the Minnesota Teen Activists Instagram page.
“One state high school, White Bear Lake, recently held a walkout to protest racist Instagram messages aimed at a black student organization. It turned out the whole thing was a hoax.
“Wright was killed by a police officer in what appears to be an accidental shooting. A female officer allegedly intended to use her taser but instead grabbed her pistol.
