Teachers Unions Support Student Walkouts as ‘Protest to Change Gun Laws’

While urging its members to “avoid any suggestion that they are speaking in their official capacity or on behalf of their local school district,” Oklahoma Education Association (OEA), for example, says the National Education Association (NEA) and its state affiliates support this “inspired movement” by students.

American Federation of Teachers (AFT) president Randi Weingarten tweeted her praise for union member Katrina Kickbush, who testified at a Senate Democrat hearing that focused on gun violence and strengthening the nation’s gun laws:

Ohio parent activist Heidi Huber tells Breitbart News the walkout “has nothing to do with keeping kids safe in school.”

Indiana parent activist Heather Crossin tells Breitbart News the student walkouts are an example that the “radical left has stooped to a new low with this latest stunt of using minors to fight their battles.”
