Superior, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) - Approximately 150 students from Superior High School walked out of class today, in solidarity with their teachers over Governor Walker's proposed budget plan.

Many of them took part in a rally at the campus of University of Wisconsin Superior.

Administration at the school threatened sanctions, including possible suspension from extra curricular activities for students who participated in the walkout.

A similar rally and walkout was held at Hayward High School in Sawyer County, and other high schools across the state.
