Instead of punishing the Latino students for walking out of class to protest, why not give them extra credit on their course work? They came out and took a stand on one of the most heated issues of our time. They got everyone's attention in the state - just check out the headlines in Texas' newspapers. They have folks talking. They were successful. They now have an experience they will cherish for the rest of their lives. They are making a difference. They get an A plus in my book. I'm proud of those kids.
