SCHOOL EXPERT: Where is the line on what behavior to report?
But dozens of universities have told students in the past week that if they are disciplined for peaceful protests, it will not affect their chances of admission. The list includes elite private universities like Yale and MIT, as well as public universities such as West Virginia and Indiana universities.
“Miami University stands with high school students across the nation who are peacefully protesting against gun violence,” the school said in a tweet from Michael Kabbaz, senior vice president for enrollment management. “Rest assured, if you incur school discipline for walking out, you can report it to us and know we have your back.”
