MSNBC Celebrates Kids Playing Hooky... for Months
Let's just hope a truant officer was watching this segment, somewhere.
The Daily Caller reports:
MSNBC touted a group of kids who are skipping school every Friday to protest inaction on climate change in a broadcast Friday.
“In over 500 cities and 75 countries, these students are skipping school and taking to the streets,” host Stephanie Ruhle reported.
“Friday for Future is this idea of students skipping school on Friday to essentially say, ‘Look, why do I need to go to school if I don’t know the future based on the state of the planet?'” Savannah Sellers said. “That’s what these students have been doing for a long time. They have been skipping school.”
“I’ve been skipping school for 11 weeks now,” 12-year-old Ella said. “And it is a sacrifice that we have to make because we are missing important things, but we realize that if we don’t skip this school, we might not have a future. So we need to.”
That's some sacrifice for the sake of the planet.
