29. It sounds more like they were herded in and forced to listen to Brownback’s propaganda
The student identified herself as a liberal, so I doubt she would have voluntarily gone. So it sounds like the price of her being involved with the Youth in Government program was being force fed propaganda by Brownback. And the principal berated her for an hour? Sounds like he's a wingnut. And no, I wouldn't have agreed with the school district regardless. This is obviously free speech, and I may not agree with what someone has to say, but I'm not going to claim they don't have a right to say it.
