Student “Protest” Ends With Whimper, Not Bang

A group of students in New Jersey walked out of school today, purportedly to protest budget cuts handed down by governor and noted dumb-ass Chris Christie. According to the article, the school district’s state aid was reduced by 2/3.

Apparently Christie is against socialized education as much as he is against socialized medicine.

I’d be more impressed with the students’ principled stand if it weren’t for this:

Students returned to school after officials began to threaten that the students may face disciplinary action for leaving class in the middle of the day.

Not exactly the 60s.

UPDATE: I greatly prefer this protest for style.
