PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Some students at a Portland magnet school for the arts are protesting the addition of more math and science classes.

About three-dozen students walked out Monday at noon at Da Vinci Arts Middle School in northeast Portland. They said the change proposed by the principal would take time away from language and social studies classes and change the feel of the magnet arts school.

One student who didn’t skip class told KATU(https://bit.ly/1hZVnwk ) that it didn’t make sense to protest your education by not getting one.

A meeting about curriculum changes is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday at the school.
