Ontario students stage provincewide walkout to protest education changes
Students at one downtown Toronto high school chanted “Doug Ford has got to go” as they walked out of class on Thursday, marking the beginning of a protest planned by students at some 600 Ontario schools who oppose changes to the province’s education system.
The walkout at Bloor Collegiate Institute was among hundreds scheduled for 1:15 p.m. ET. The provincewide protest by both elementary and high school students was organized by students on social media, mainly Instagram, with the hashtag #StudentsSayNo.
