Students walk out of class at Santee school near downtown

About 200 students stood outside Santee Education Complex near downtown Los Angeles today in what is believed to be a protest of education budget cuts.

Last week, hundreds of students walked out of L.A. public high schools to protest potential teacher layoffs and the larger class sizes that would result.

The high school opened in 2005 and has about 3,400 students. No one from the school or the Los Angeles Unified School District was available for comment this morning.

ah yes, the future salesclerks and masons, walking out to "protest". Not really, they just want to go to the mall, while our taxes pay for their "education"

i go to that school and we didn't because it's not fair that they cut out really good teacher and we did that because we care not because we want o go to the "mall."

i go to that school and we didn't because it's not fair that they cut out really good teachers we did that because we care not because we want o go to the "mall" like u say we do. we have to let our voice be heard.

Wow,
It is great to see that those "good" teachers taught you how to properly construct a sentence. Also, please learn how to properly spell items like the word you.

You are a reflection of how well these “good” teachers are performing. Apparently we should completely close your school down since you do not feel the need to attend and have demonstrated that you are incapable of learning the English language. It is great to see these exemplary examples of students that plagiarize one another, as there are two posts that are quite similar.

The first poster was incorrect; I don’t even see a career opportunity for you in retail either.

It is obvious the students are not getting the whole picture. Hopefully their government and math teachers can teach them about dollars and sense that go with government. They also need to be taught that if you have a job in the private sector that is not unionized you cannot just walk out and protest. You do the work and accept the terms of employment agreed upon or you find another job. The city and state do not have enough money right now this is basic math and the students need to be taught that this is a part of being in government. Walking out and protesting is not the only way to show support nor is it the only thing for the students to learn about what is currently going on.
