Video: Edina High School Students Refuse to Stand for Veterans

This video shows how extremely disrespectful some students at Edina High School were towards veterans at a school assembly to commemorate Veterans Day last Friday.

In a message to Edina parents as tensions mounted over the incident yesterday, Superintendent John Schultz praised the students who refused to stand during the ceremony.

During one of the EHS assemblies, a small group of students chose to peacefully protest during the playing of the national anthem. Since the event, EHS administration engaged in multiple conversations both with the students who protested and with others who expressed their concerns about the protests.

In addition to discussions of constitutional rights and how to protest without disruption, the students were able to respectfully hold conversations with each other about the importance of understanding all sides of an issue and respecting another person’s perspectives, even when different from their own.”

Schultz essentially thanked “protesters” for their self-control in not disrupting the playing of the national anthem and by extension “Taps”, even as the students sprawled on the gym floor a few yards away from a vet playing the timeless tribute to  fallen heroes who fought for their freedom to bring shame on their school.
