Thousands of New Jersey high school students walked out of class Tuesday to protest budget cuts, a statewide event organized through text messages and social networking websites.

The anatomy of a protest was on full display at Englewood's Dwight Morrow High School. It started with a small group of students who tested the waters Tuesday morning.

"Education should always be the first priority," said junior Amber Diaz. Their goal was to participate in a statewide effort to voice their concerns and frustration over what they said was Gov. Chris Christie's assault on public education.

By 9 a.m. in Engelwood, a few hundred students, all of whom school officials said will face Saturday detention for cutting class, poured out of the school.
