bayareaBERKELEY, Calif. — Students across the country are walking out of their classes Wednesday to protest the election of Donald Trump.

More than 1,000 California high school students have walked out of classes in Berkeley.

Berkeley Unified School District spokesman Charles Burress says about half of the school’s 3,000 students left at the start of the first period on Wednesday and gathered in the school’s courtyard with anti-Trump signs.

Burress said classes were still going on for students not involved in the protests.

Similar protests at schools and college campuses have been reported across the nation following Trump’s victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
