Arne Duncan, former CEO of Chicago Public Schools and past education secretary in the Obama administration, tweeted support for a school boycott until gun laws change.
What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?Arne Duncan, former CEO of Chicago Public Schools and past education secretary in the Obama administration, tweeted that question on Friday after eight students and two teachers were killed in a school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.
Duncan tweeted his support for a school boycott in response to a tweet by Peter Cunningham, a former assistant secretary of education and the executive director of the Education Post. Cunningham said: "Maybe it's time for America's 50 million school parents to simply pull their kids out of school until we have better gun laws."In response, Duncan said: "This is brilliant, and tragically necessary. What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe? My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?"
