Walt Williams’ Creekside High School students were on the Plaza Friday afternoon protesting fracking for oil. Well, most were protesting anyway. Of the 16 students, 14 were protesting against fracking while two were pro-fracking. The mini-protest was the result of a class at the school that examined the fracking issue, and Williams encouraged the students to make signs and come to the Plaza. In addition, one student made an anti-Crimean war sign while another protested the fact that his teacher was making him protest.

    Usually fracking is for natural gas not oil. And the process is fine if done right.

    It’s about time that high school students are taught about relevant subjects and learn about the democratic process. Teaching youth about making informed decisions, and how to evaluate both sides of an argument will serve them well as adults.

    This is probably far more beneficial that teaching to a standardized test.
