Chandler High Schooler Talks About Experience During Walkout

Since the mass shooting at a Parkland high school on Valentine’s Day, students across Florida have demanded changes to gun laws — and across the country, we’re seeing other high schoolers echo them.

Chandler High School Junior Emily Price was planning a school walkout for next month, but other students at her school jumped on the idea even sooner, along with a wave of school walkouts across Arizona last week.

Price found herself standing with her peers in her school courtyard Friday. When I spoke with her, she told me about the experience.
