About 100 students of Parkrose High School walked out of class today in protest of a budget proposal by the school district. It would layoff a popular art teacher and close the school's alternative learning program, PACE.
Superintendent Karen Gray's proposed budget calls for seven teachers to be laid off across the district.
Students are sticking up for Mark Warner, head of the school's art department. They held signs and waved at passing drivers.
The group of kids risked being banned from the prom and facing detention to take a stand.
