From ChicagoBreakingNews.com:

About 700 students gathered in front of Chicago Public Schools headquarters this morning to protest drastic budget cuts which they say they are already starting to feel.

“It started with JV sports, then they started cutting teachers – What’s next?” asked Somyiah Nance, a 15-year-old freshman at Whitney Young High School.

The students held signs that read “No to 37” -the amount of students per class district officials say they’ll have to expand to – and chanted, “Save our schools.”

The students, holding cameras and taking pictures with their cell phones, marched 14 blocks east on Jackson Boulevard from their school to CPS headquarters, 125 S. Clark St. They marched north to the Thompson Center to continue their protest. Police shut down several blocks on Clark Street between Monroe and Adams Street for about two hours for the protest.
