Oakland school administrators help organize anti-Trump student protests

OAKLAND, Calif. – Officials at Oakland’s Claremont Middle School are helping students organize protests against President-elect Donald Trump unbeknownst to their parents, essentially endorsing the disobedience.

About 300 sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade students walked out of class Thursday as part of an anti-Donald Trump protest organized on Instagram. Teachers and school officials escorted students around the Rockridge neighborhood while they chanted and waved signs with Hillary Clinton campaign logos that read “We have the right to protest” for the first two class periods of the day, NBC Bay Area reports.

Teacher Lacy Lefkowitz told the news site students are petrified about the potential ramifications of Donald Trump’s historic victory Tuesday.

“They’re concerned about racism, the wall Trump wants to build and immigration,” Lefkowitz said. “It’s not OK to loot and set fires. But I think this is a great thing for them to do.”

Principal Jonathan Mayer approved the protest, and did not inform parents their children left the school grounds until after it was over.

Most of those teachers and administrators are not qualified. They are there because of affirmative action.

Any time a student leaves the grounds for any sort of event, there has to be a permission slip signed by a parent. What they did here is against school policy. Parents should be upset.

This is a perfect example of the liberals agenda.

This is all a bunch of crap. How am I expected to believe a sixth grader has any interest in politics when college students interviewed on the street doesn't know who the seating VP is and some don't even know the president and could care less.

Once again people,this is why we Private-school our kids.Where they actually learn something instead of being indoctrinated.

The kids saw this as a way to get out of school for a day, plain and simple. They certainly can protest, but teachers allowing this and ever coordinating this should face discipline.
