“We the students do not consent!” and “Who says no? The students say no!” were just some of the phrases chanted by high school students in the Sault during Thursday afternoon’s province-wide walkout.
This walkout – which involved over 800 schools across Ontario – was in protest of the Provincial Government’s recent cuts and changes to the education policy, such as increased class sizes ans changes to the province’s autism program.
Some school boards in the province have written to the education minister with concerns that increased class sizes will mean fewer elective courses such as the arts and skilled trades.
ONNtv went to local high schools to speak to protesters. Watch the video above for more.
