Editor's Comment: The new tactic being used by the government. If students from your school go out to protest, throw stones at police officers, close streets, or otherwise cause chaos, then the entire student body will pay a price. They close the schools so that the students are not all there clustered together as a mass, and they wait until the situation has cooled down before opening the school again and restarting classes. And when the school is closed for a week or two, all of the students will be forced to make up the missed work. The down time also gives the Ministry of Education time to study the video tape, to see if any of the students participated in acts of violence or vandalism, so they can be disciplined. How often do you see a group of students protesting because they want to go back to class? It's got to be having some sort of effect.
