I as well as other adults did encourage these students to protest after school hours. This decision was made independently of us and many of them had the support of their parents to protest during school hours. Although the media didn't show it, many of their parents were at McKinley in support and even held a PTA meeting after the early morning protest.

We should be encouraging these students to be in classes -- not running through the streets during school hours. Protest during Non-School hours.

The students must protest when and where it will have the greatest impact.

Besides this is an educational experience.
