Many students and parents around the country and certainly here in the gem state have voiced concerns and disagreements especially this year. Now one High School Senior from Boise is stepping up and speaking out in a bigger way.
The last thing a 7-year old needs is to lug around a 20-pound backpack all day, and doctors are warning that a school backpack can lead to life-long problems if it's too heavy. Are Boise school supply lists going to cause any issues?
The protest broke out this morning and Superintendent Robin Gilbert said the Payette High School went on lock-down because of it. As for what is causing these high schoolers to go on lock-down? We do not know just yet. The principal and the Superintendent is working on talking with the student president now to find out more.
