SAN DIEGO — Hundreds of people gathered near San Diego City College Friday morning to protest cuts to education.

Carrying signs and drums, demonstrators — many of them students — voiced their anger over the cuts to education in a loud protest during the U.S. Department of Education Community College Summit on campus. Among other items, the students say they’re upset over the cut to summer school classes.

The San Diego Community College District has canceled most of the summer session due to budget cuts. The district usually offers about 1,100 classes that serve more than 23,000 students. Now, only select classes serving those graduating in the summer or year-round programs will be offered.
