BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) - Hundreds of Oklahoma high school students symbolically cut class to protest proposed state education funding cuts. Bartlesville High School students walked out Friday in a demonstration on the football field that lasted 22 minutes. Students said that was one minute for each million that would be cut. Teachers are considering a similar, statewide demonstration. Oklahoma lawmakers have sent Gov. Mary Fallin the proposed cuts approved after they failed to approve a package of tax increases.
