In response to the article, High School Intifada, readers have expressed a unanimous opinion that the freedom of speech and assembly are guaranteed by the Constitution in this country. Comments also allude to the fact that despite individual or bureaucratic policies, activism, when done in a peaceful and non-violent manner can promote consciousness and dialogue.
The comments also point out the importance of objective and forward thinking teaching policies, and respect for young people and their opinions. In other words, an environment for exchange of thought and ideas must be provided to students and emulated by teachers.
