Some Janesville students are planning to walk out of class to protest the school board's decision to cut nearly 100 classes.
The proposed cuts are an attempt to fill a nearly $10 million budget shortfall.
In an effort to fill the budget gap, the school board has approved $6.5 million worth of cuts, which means fewer classes and teachers.
"Education should not have a price tag, and students shouldn't have to pay the price," said Stephen Allison, a junior at Craig High School.
Allison and sophomore Bruno Tort are on a mission to have their classmates voices' heard. They are organizing a walkout to protest the district's decision to cut classes with fewer than 24 students.
"The plan is to get a petition together and a letter and, next Friday, we're probably going to go marching straight up to the district building," Allison said.
Janesville School District President Bill Sodemann said reducing classes is just one of the options the district is looking at to balance the budget.
