The Times Union:
The New York Civil Liberties Union has criticized a Long Island school district for suspending students who walked out of class to protest budget cuts.
The NYCLU said in a letter last week to the Central Islip (EYE’-slihp) district that the students were exercising their constitutional rights and “should be praised for their idealism.”
