Bps Students Walk Out To Protest Proposed Budget Cuts

More than 1,000 Boston public school students walked out of classes Monday morning and marched though downtown to protest proposed budget cuts, holding signs with such messages as, “What about our future?”

The students first gathered on Boston Common before crossing Beacon Street to the State House and then marching past City Hall to Faneuil Hall Marketplace, where they used bullhorns to decry anticipated program cuts and the expected loss of teaching positions.

“We are the future of this country,” one student speaker said. “How dare they take away our education when they want us to be well-rounded students.”
