Picket and protest a child's school?

About a year ago, a group protested outside my daughter's school. They had signs and cowbells, They disrupted the day, as well as making it difficult for parents to pick up at the end of the day. They also protested outside another nearby school, and even approached and tried to talk to the (preschool age) kids. These people are protesting because they don't like the method the schools use to teach the kids. They believe the schools should be shut down, and all the students should be educated in a different way.

So, my question is, do you think it is appropriate to picket and protest outside a school?

No, its wrong and disgusting. WBC did it at an elementry school here a couple years ago right when school let out. A bunch of people stood in front of them so the kids wouldnt have to see. You dont bring children into things like thatm

AT my daughter's school, the teachers had to block the windows, but the kids wanted to know what was going on, and why the people were so angry...

They believe that deaf children should not be allowed to learn spoken language. They want the school's shut down, and every child to attend only sign language schools.

Nope, none of them have children in schools, and most of them were not even from this state.

No I don't think interrupting classes is appropriate at all but unfortunately it is free speech. They should not have been in any position however to be close enough to approach / converse with Any of the kids. That's a huge no no to me.
