The Telegram and Gazette reported several hours after we did yesterday about the student protest at David Prouty.
We’re almost ready to publish that story on the background with that whole thing, but before we do we just wanted to send an important message to the kids who are leading this protest. Because this excerpt from the Telegram’s story caught our attention:
At 2:15 p.m. Thursday, Mr. Bemis, Mr. Caffarena and several other students will meet with the superintendent and school committee chair to talk about the matter.
Don’t do it kids. It’s a trap. If the superintendent had an ounce of integrity she would’ve spoken with you all at the School Committee meeting on Tuesday. Or she would’ve actually come into work yesterday and spoken with you all in the gym. Or she would’ve had a schooled assembly at the school today to address what she’s going to do to restore your extracurricular activities. This woman is bad news and she needs to go. If your programs aren’t immediately restored and you don’t have adequate textbooks tomorrow, then she must go. That’s it. No compromise.
But she didn’t do any of that. Instead she’s having a private meeting with four or five of the designated leaders behind closed doors. Why do you think she’s doing it this way? Because she’s got a PhD and she thinks she’s smart enough to manipulate a bunch of high school kids. Don’t fall for it. It’s a trap. If you go into that meeting please make damn sure your parents are with you. Because at the end of the day she fears your parents but she doesn’t fear you.
P.S. You kids these days have a huge advantage with the protest game because of your iMachines. You can communicate with the outside world and let them know about your movement. But more importantly you can avoid boredom. I was totally gonna occupy the gym at Doherty back in 98, but then I realized I would’ve run out of things to talk about after 30 minutes because Zack Morris was the only teenager with a cell phone.
Double P.S. Love this kid’s burn to Kevin Ksen when he made fun of suburban white kids protesting.
