Should the marchers really have skipped school?


I don’t begin to understand the immigration issue. It is so complex. However I do not support children who missed school May 1 – or anytime in the recent past – to participate in the protest marches. If, as your article said today (March in Avon, SDN May 2), “marchers want … better opportunities for immigrants to become legal workers in the U.S.,” how, I ask, can this possibly be achieved by not attending school? How can anyone expect to better themselves by intentionally being absent? The children are our future and everyday at school is important.
