FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Earlier today, students at West Valley and Lathrop high schools staged a walkout during class to protest education cuts in Governor Dunleavy's proposed budget.

Around 20 students at Lathrop joined the protest.
A few of them spoke about the issue and how they felt it would affect them

"So this is absolutely unacceptable, this budget may not touch our seniors or those who plan on leaving for college right away, but it will affect the rest of us," said one of the students at Lathrop.
