Public sector workers, teachers to hold multiple walkouts in November
Parents and students stood arm-in-arm outside Quebec public schools this morning to protest against compressions in education.
More than 250 schools said they planned to participate in the demonstrations organized by the non-profit group Je protège mon école publique.

Teachers and support staff are expected to join in the human chains outside of schools.
The organization has also invited parents to protest outside of Liberal candidate Dominique Anglade's campaign office in the riding of Saint-Henri-Sainte-Anne in Montreal.
Anglade is vying for one of four vacant posts in Quebec's provincial byelection.
Quebec teachers have been without a contract since April.
