Nearly 300 Clifton High School students marched from their school to city hall on Wednesday in an effort to send a message to New Jersey lawmakers that they want more education funding.

The Clifton Student Union claims that since 2008, their district’s funding formula has changed, and students want a meeting with state officials by April 7.

“We only receive 35% of the $75M which the state of New Jersey is supposed to fund us at,” Carlos Polanco, of the Clifton Student Union said.

So far, the Clifton Board of Education has not commended on the matter.
