If they did it on a Saturday nobody would even know about it or care, politics is a topic that will hugely affect them and their future!

Politics is life and death, if they are educated enough in the issues facing the world that they want to protest, they should be allowed to.

Since the parents won't do it the children must.

Adults are ignoring the science. relying only on what's here now. and how changing their carbon footprint would affect their lifestyle

What better way is there for students to become a part of the process whereby the public lets their representatives know what is important to them?

Only if they are willing to accept the consequences of skipping school (missed lessons, homework...)

Be aware, be involved! These students are our future and have every right to protest when they see an issue that needs attention!

If it means that much to them they ought to do it on their own time.

Absolutely not!! They must be in school to learn. Politics should be outside of school hours. Oregon already has a graduation, test score problem. Keep politics out of the schools. So sick of politics

Students need to be in school! If they want to make this earth better study hard get a great education and come up with solutions that will fix the problems. Protesting does not fix problems!!!

Their “job” is to attend scho and become informed. They can strike after scho hours.

These kids are being led by the nose by their teachers influence. Liberals teach climate change and socialism and not about American government anymore. No one should be influenced by others.

Instead of standing on a street corner wasting taxpayers money that is paid for kids to be in school how about actually doing something like volunteering with Forrest service and replant the Forrest

Not sure what happened to learning, and I suppose they don’t have to make up the day lost.

they were coached by liberal teachers, who should teach them about the fossil record and the fact the climate is constantly changing. could have done this during spring break.

Allowing your kids to skip school for something they have ZERO control over is another far left insanity.

I respect their activism, but there are plenty of other times to do it w/o skipping school.

Because they totally do not know all the answers and they don't get taught enough in school without them leaving school to cause chaos.

School is for learning, not for political protesting. There is plenty of time outside of school to protest.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
