Students walk out of class at Santee school near downtown

May 18, 2009 |  9:21 am

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.
