Students protesting the possible closure of their downtown Burlington high school garnered some attention at last weekend’s Burlington Santa Claus Parade — including that of the city’s mayor.
My Take: Proud of our local students who got involved in raising awareness of what’s happening in our downtown community with parade float for Central HIgh School. Said student organizer Shasni Pathirana: “If we don’t speak up and voice our opinions, the only question we have to ask ourselves is, ‘If not now, when? If not us, who?” Exactly. Welcome, young people, to democracy.
