Hey, Texans, learn from your children!
Students at Ahmed Mohamed’s Irving, Texas high school have rallied to support the Muslim teenager, after school officials and police had him arrested for bringing a home-made clock to school.
Since his arrest, students tweeted a school-wide plan to bring clocks to school today and tell the teachers it was in solidarity with their classmate.
More students say they will continue to join in, to keep the pressure on the school until the principal apologizes and removes the suspension from Ahmed’s record.
