Middletown high schoolers punished for walkout
Students across the country participated in day of walkouts and protests earlier this month in support of the victims of the Parkland, Florida shooting. At nearby Madison High School in Middletown, 43 students who participated got detention. Among those punished was Emily Phelps, student council treasurer and incoming first-year at Miami. “I think it’s wrong that we were punished at all, because I felt that the administration should have supported us from the beginning,” Phelps said.
