Protests like those seen in Door and Kewaunee County in March have become a common place at high schools across the country in recent weeks, forcing a dialogue among administrators and their students. School shootings in Parkland, Fla. earlier this year and Columbine, Colo. nearly 20 years ago saw thousands of students nationwide walk out of classrooms to protest gun violence. A counter protest is planned at approximately 200 high schools nationwide for Wednesday to support Second Amendment rights, called “Stand for the Second.” Sturgeon Bay School District Superintendent Dan Tjernagel says it comes down to communication and starting a conversation.
Tjernagel says there are currently no plans for a student-led, pro-Second Amendment walkout Wednesday, with the nearest protests occurring Sun Prairie, Sussex, and Wales.
