California teacher Julianne Benzel recently asked her class a very valid question. Would schools allow students to walk out of class to protest abortion the same way they did for gun control. Now she has been placed on leave. Looks like that answers her question.
CBS San Diego reports:
California High School Teacher On Leave After Questioning School Shooting Walkout
A Rocklin High School teacher is on paid administrative leave over her views about the national school walk out. The teacher says all she did was open up a debate about the politics of the protest in her classroom.
Mrs. Benzel teaches history at Rocklin High School.
She says it was only appropriate to talk to her class about the politics of organized protests, ahead of the school walkout.
But she says the school disagreed with her views and told her to stay home Wednesday morning.
“We had a dialogue in class about it in Thursday and Friday. And today I received the call. So I am aghast,” said Julianne Benzel…
“And so I just kind of used the example which I know it’s really controversial, but I know it was the best example I thought of at the time—a group of students nationwide, or even locally, decided ‘I want to walk out of school for 17 minutes’ and go in the quad area and protest abortion, would that be allowed by our administration?” she said.
