I don't teach in Urbandale. I heard about the 12:45 planned
peaceful walk-out of high school students as a silent
protest to their 8 period day being reduced to 7 periods due
to recent budget cuts. Apparently, the school board felt
that they could save money by reducing the day one period,
which in turn would cut staff/choices previously available.

I understand that the peaceful, silent protest was "known"
so that those that did walk-out wouldn't get in trouble.
They know it won't change what the school board has to do,
but then that isn't where the problem is... the problem is
in the state budget cuts.
