To the Editor:
Once again, the Ridgefield High School finds itself playing politics and encouraging students to leave school and participate in an Anti-Gun rally “showing their support to stop gun violence,” this Friday, April 20. This outrageous effort by school administrators and the principal is an affront to our children’s right to be taught valuable civics lessons and engage in healthy debates about how to stem violence in whatever form it takes; including a complete cessation of bullying. Instead, they encourage students to leave classes, go outside and protest, thus disrupting other students right to an education. This is not a productive use of their time. The weather on Friday is delightfully supposed to be rainy and cold. How apropos.
