  1. wen Shayla wears a black armband she gets in trouble because it’s “distracting”.
    But there’s a cause i would standup at school for…. Leaving kids out. yes leaving kids out i have noticed that many kids have been left out and it’s not very nice or cool so i would stand up for that even if it means getting in trouble

  2. I think that it is important to stick up for what you believe in, but if someone tells you not to do something, you should most likely not to do it. I would do it outside of school if I were to get told not to do something.

  3. I think that if you believe something is true, you should stand up for it. If Shayla believed that wearing the band was right, than she did the right thing.

  4. Shayla wears the armband because Black Lives Matter has is important to her. I would protest teachers making assumptions and not looking up facts. I would also protest teachers saying I love this don’t you love it to because then the student is feels forced to say yes even if they hate that thing. For example once a teacher gave some kids a reward and it was sour skittles and said I love sour skittles don’t you but I hate sour skittles.but I felt forced to say yes.
