Students from Buckeye High School walked out in protest Monday morning.

The protest is in response to several incidents where the school forced a student to remove a shirt that read “Black Lives Matter.”

According to Puente Arizona, a sophomore student was forced to change her shirt by administration. Soon after another student was sent home for wearing a shirt that also read “Black Lives Matter.”

Students say the walk out is in protest of discrimination by their school administration.

They say they will not tolerate racism from the school and are demanding changes.
