SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. (KABC) -- Protests were held Tuesday over planned cuts to schools across California.
Parents were the driving force behind the movement. They said they were fed up with pink slips and cut backs. They started a grassroots organization called Educate the State. Their goal is to get the message out to lawmakers that they need to wake up and start caring about public education.
Parents, students and teachers held an organized walkout at Millikan Middle School in Sherman Oaks to echo that message.
"We've been, cut, cut, cut, cut," said parent Aleta Braxton-O'Brien. "We cannot take any more cuts."
