Flint Northern High School Students Walk Out Of Class

Ryan Garza, MLive.com

According to MLive, 150-200 students at Flint Northern High School walked out of school today in protest.  The Students walked out of school in protest over the extremely warm temperatures inside the school building.  Flint, Michigan has witnessed record breaking warm temperatures which has taken everyone in the area by surprise.

The local high school air conditioning system did not activate since the unusual temperatures have visited our area.  No air condition has caused students to walk out of school in protest over the heat inside the building.

It looks as if the students could be facing disciplinary actions for walking out of school in protest.  The walking out school falls under unlawful protest and disrupts the learning process.  I don’t know about you but I do not think the students should be disciplined for the protest.  If your work place or classroom was unusual warm and not corrected, I would walk out too.  I graduated from Flint Northern and know how hot it can get in that build where windows do not open and provided ventilation.  Thumbs up to the students at Flint Northern.

The temperature in Flint today is about 80 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

The unit had not been activated yet because it is new equipment installed last year and they were waiting for workers from the company that supplied the unit to come turn it on. This is required for the initial activation of the system or the district could rick losing its warranty on the equipment, Campbell said.

Despite the walkout, classes have not been cancelled.

“I don’t know if it’s been turned on yet,” Campbell said around noon. “We were in the process of getting it turned on. It hasn’t been activated yet for the cooling season because it’s been unseasonably warm.”

The students who walked out could be subject to discipline for “unlawful protest … defined as a disruption of the school day,” Campbell said.

“So they could get a five-day suspension,” Campbell said. “Now whether all those kids get that, I don’t know at this point.”

“It’s basically skipping school,” he said.
