Illinois Students Rally on Teachers' Behalf

In one state students are taking a stand for their teachers.  Hundreds of students in Northwest Illinois staged a walkout after learning 363 of their teachers will be laid off this year.  Students chanted and held signs in protest.  The school district says the cuts are needed to close a $5 million budget gap.  The layoffs target teachers with one to seven years of experience.
