On Thursday, March 31 at 7:30am, parents of students at Balboa Magnet plan to protest LAUSD budget cuts. According to an email sent by protest organizers, three Balboa Magnet teachers and the school's magnet coordinator have been given layoff notices, and programs at the gifted magnet are threatened, including the school's orchestra, choir, and afterschool playground. Protestors plan to march outside of the campus from 7:30 a.m. until 8:00 a.m., wearing black and carrying protest signs reading "Budget Cuts Hurt Our Kids," among others.
