Broward Student Suspended For Passing Out Climate Change Flyers

A South Broward High School student lands in hot water over a flyer promoting the Global Youth Climate Strike taking place around the world today. 17-year-old Elijah Ruby says he got permission from his assistant principal to pass out flyers promoting the Ft. Lauderdale rally taking place during school hours today, but while he was doing it he says he got called into the principal's office and was suspended for defiance. The District says it supports student activism, but Elijah's flyers misrepresented the walkout as a District sanctioned event which it's not. Even though he was suspended, Elijah will be able to attend senior events like homecoming and prom.
