Three hundred students and teachers marched out of Mission High School early today, leading the charge to a rally at 24th and Mission Streets. They were joined by other schools along the way, ending in a 600-strong chanting throng. The group was later joined by other protestors and marched down Mission Street and on to Civic Center for a rally with students and public education supporters from across the city.
