The students were touring the Capitol when an opportunity arose for them to take a photo with the Speaker. More than half of the students refused to, some for political reasons, some for others not noted.
Parents of the students had a mixed a reaction. Some were proud that their child had taken an interest in politics while others thought the behavior was indecorous.
A spokesman for Speaker Ryan said, “Speaker Ryan always appreciates the opportunity to welcome students to the Capitol.”
