The protests and demonstrations at college campuses across the United States include more than 80 locations, many of them in California. More than 100 protesters were arrested at UCLA on Thursday and just this morning 64 were arrested at UC San Diego.

But, has the reach of these efforts made it to the youth in California grade schools? A recent social media post claims they have.

I read through many comments on the post and didn’t see any that claimed to be from teachers, but dozens were posted by parents stating that they do not support this and that actions like this by the UTLA are why they have pulled their children from the school system.
