600 students walk out at Goldstein HS against budget cuts

The walkout got good coverage on channel 12 news (above). A small group of students planned it meticulously entirely by themselves. Students assigned marshalls to avoid conflicts with the police.They assigned people to each floor to spread the word at the exact time (after 2nd period). They gave out written instructions on both how to exit the building and how to avoid conflict with the security and administration. The students were thrilled. - Reported by a teacher at the school

The UFT could take some notes from the organizers of this walk out
