Virginia School System to Allow Students Day Off to Protest

The Virginia Public School System has a new plan that will allow students one excused absence per school year to participate in civic activities such as protests.

Starting in January 2020, Virginia students in seventh through 12th grades can use the day for “civic engagement activities such as attending marches or meeting with lawmakers.”

According to The Washington Post, the new policy was introduced by Fairfax School Board member Ryan McElveen. McElveen proudly stated, “It’s a dawning of a new day in student activism, and school systems everywhere are going to have to be responsive to it.”
