ACLU Discusses Student Rights; Cokie Roberts Discusses Politics
Students have been motivated to push for change in the wake of yet another school shooting, this one resulting in 17 deaths in Parkland, Florida two weeks ago. We've seen survivors deliver speeches, lead rallies and confront those in power about gun control and other measures to keep them safe. The cause has spread across the country. Students in many schools, including Northeast Ohio, plan protests. We'll discuss the possible repercussions for protest. What rights do the students have? What action can or might school administrators take? First, though, we'll take your questions for NPR contributor Cokie Roberts, who joins us and will be honored by Ursuline College on March 6.
