What Will Happen If My Kids Protest?


Unofficial word from Fargo South High School is that any student who, when participating in the National School Walkout on March 14, holds up signs expressing opinions about gun violence in schools, chants slogans or does anything else that draws attention, will be suspended.

Further, they will not be allowed to walk out at 10 a.m. in conjunction with students across the rest of the nation, but will have to wait until 1 p.m. due to an all-school event scheduled for that morning.

If this is accurate and true (and I hope its not), both of these edicts would seem to contradict what I am reading in terms of students’ legal rights related to peaceful protests on public school property during a school day.

I’ve written to Fargo Public Schools to ask specifically what it’s policies/positions on this will be. I’ve also written to the North Dakota office of the ACLU. I’ll share any responses I get here.
