Thousands of elementary and secondary school students are expressing their discontent with the provincial government following the proposal of sweeping changes to education in the province.

On Thursday, April 4, students in over 700 school across Ontario walked out of class at 1:15 p.m. to protest the changes, which include changes to class sizes (the Doug Ford government has proposed increasing them), e-learning (students will be required to complete several online classes), the new sexual education curriculum and funding cuts.

Students say the walkout is part of the student-led #StudentsSayNo campaign (@studentssayno).
