The Oregon legislature wants to cut one hundred and six million dollars from public schools this year. 
This is in addition to the sixty one million that has already been cut which has lead to layoffs and lost school days in many Oregon School districts. 
In response, a group of education advocates have staged a protest in Salem and started an online petition to be delivered to the legislature this monday.
Holly Pruett, a representative from the group Stand For Children explains the issue.
