Lauren Kahn was a sophomore at Oakland Technical High School in November 2016 when she watched students stand up and walk out of class to protest the election of our president.
That was the first Lauren had heard of a walkout. Two years later, the 17-year-old senior, who is in her final semester of high school, is helping plan the protests that are emptying her schools classrooms.

American school s are no longer for education they are for indoctrination
Yeah, like high school kids need a reason to walk out of a classroom.
They’ll protest the sun rising if it will get them out of class for a few hours.
I hope they never go back. Starve the beast.
I guess providing a lesson on the power of a science or math education was not going to happen.
So schools are indoctrination centers, then protests start,then schools are emptied out , then the heads of students are emptied out, then they are proud Dems voting Ocasio Cortez programs into reality.
She was out in front of them all: nothing to empty out of her head.
What an education system.
Taxpayer-funded social agitation.
Any parent who permits their student to engage in this is a fool. They deserve whatever happens.
Oakland Technical High School students support their teachers rallying for higher pay and smaller classes.
I think they should think up reasons to walk out every morning. They would be better off not being in government schools.
In some schools students are paying attention in class, doing their school work and studying. The protesters forget that they will compete with these real students when it comes to post-school jobs.
> These kids leaving the classrooms for protests means that their schools receive no money <
Maybe, but maybe not. In my neck of the woods, the official attendance period for funding purposes is the lunch period (pretty clever, eh?). So if a kid is there for lunch, he’s counted. And if he walks out later, that doesn’t matter.
“I don’t like the President so I am not going to learn! That’ll teach him!”
Reminds me of certain kids, not allowed in till after 1957, who, in 1997, went to Central High in Little rock who put their heads on the desks and refused to learn.
Kids are going to catch a lot of flies with those mouths open.
Fine if they don’t want to be in class, detention works.
My daughter, who was an AVERAGE math student in Japan was suddenly in the 92nd percentile in one of the top rated school districts in Pennsylvania when we moved back to the United States. Why do you suppose that is?
White privilege? (just kidding)
Treat walkouts like a snow day. It has to be made up.
Power of protest? Er, Trump is still President.
