GRAVENHURST — Students at Gravenhurst High School “say no.”
They plan to join a province-wide protest Thursday afternoon to demonstrate against provincial education changes.
It will take in front of the Opera House, two blocks from the school, from 1:15 to 2 p.m.
Students are being asked to wear black to the protest.
Sage van Kooten, one the four students organizing the “walkout,” April 4, says students are protesting “against the changes that Doug Ford is making to the education system.”
She said: “These changes include making students take 4 mandatory online courses, increasing the average class size to 28 students, cuts to supports for students with autism inside and outside of school, cutting funding for the arts and much more.
