Tuscon School Officials Find Way to Stop Student Protests

After three straight days of protests featuring hundreds of high school students marching through the streets of Tucson waving Mexican flags and chanting slogans against enforcing immigration laws, Tucson school officials have found a way to stop the protests.

They cleverly scheduled Saturday. Apparently the commitment of the local teens to immigrant rights does not extend to giving up their free time. As long as they aren't getting to cut classes, the idea of protesting loses its attractiveness. I expect other school districts around the country who are struggling with the issue to copy this strategy once they learn how effective it is.
