student protest north springs high school


Update: 3:15 PM

We have just received documentation that the Principal of North Springs Charter High School, Scott Hansen sent out a conflicting letter to parents citing the incident (with Willis asking the student to remove the #blacklivesmatter shirt because they are are a terrorist organization) just a “rumor” as if it never happened.

But we have just obtained video evidence of the Principal acknowledging the shirt from a new source:
“Even though the email CLAIMS that the shirt situation was a rumor, he explicitly mentions the tshirt in the video. In addition, the admin that took the shirt (Kira Willis) was a republican candidate for state school chief in 2014, as well as the Libertarian nominee for state school superintendent in 2010.”

Sources also report that not only were students protesting, but so were teachers and even 4 police officers on duty who stood with their arms folded during the entire sit in. Teachers were crying and saying that they were happy the students from all races and backgrounds are standing together.

The students are not letting the Principal get off easy on this:

( — We have learned exclusively that several high school students and teachers are protesting at North Springs Charter High School after a white Assistant Principal demanded a black female student to remove her “Black Lives Matter” t-shirt, citing that the organization is a terrorist group.
