Shelby Webb at the Houston Chronicle: Houston-Area School District Threatens to Suspend Students Who Protest After Florida Shooting.
Needville ISD Superintendent Curtis Rhodes on Tuesday threatened to suspend any student who disrupts schools or walks out to protest current gun laws.

In a letter sent to families and published on schools' social media sites, Rhodes said students would face a three-day, out-of-school suspension if they joined in growing protests nationwide over the shooting at a Florida high school last week.

"Life is all about choices and every choice has a consequence whether it be positive or negative. We will discipline no matter if it is one, fifty, or five hundred students involved," Rhodes wrote. "All will be suspended for 3 days and parent notes will not alleviate the discipline."

...Rhodes said the school district is sensitive to violence in schools, but said his schools are focused on education, not political protests.

"A school is a place to learn and grow educationally, emotionally, and morally," Rhodes wrote. "A disruption of the school will not be tolerated."
I guess the irony of the fact that students are protesting the disruptions of schools by deadly gun violence is lost on this dipshit.

Who also believes that "education" and "political protests" are inherently mutually exclusive concepts.

Take the suspensions, kids. Trust this old lady that, in the grand scheme of your life, a mark on your record definitely won't matter. But standing up for your principles always will.
