Hundreds of students from schools across Dundee marched to the council on Friday of last week.

Paul, a 15-year old student from Harris Academy, said, “They are going to take £4 million out of the education budget. Under Thatcher they shut down the coal mines—now they’re going to shut down everything. We are handing a petition into the council but we have to go much further.”
