Sidewalk Talk: What do you think of the term ‘Parkland Youth?’

“A lot of people use it as derogatory, but I can also see it as a positive term because it describes the community around us.”

-Kiersten Bowers, senior




“I guess it’s a little derogatory. It’s kind of a label that we give people that’s not meant to be endearing.” -Jordan Flynn, senior





“I think it’s actually pretty degrading, but I know not everyone means it as a derogatory term.” -Erica Boyle, senior





“I don’t think it’s offensive. I think it’s just a term to refer to kids hanging around on campus.” -Maxwell Silver, sophomore
