A mass walkout at a Silver Spring, Md., high school on Monday to protest Donald Trump's presidential election victory began when a group of students chose to take to the streets rather than remain on campus for a school-sanctioned demonstration.
In Los Angeles, students converged Monday on Mariachi Plaza, a gathering spot for the city's iconic musicians, and marched to City Hall.
She added, "At Amherst High School, I know we're taught so much more than many places in the rest of the country". Some students held signs as they left the school. We are proud of our school's diversity, no matter who's elected into office or what they may say.
The students' schools are among the most diverse in the county-Blair's population is 25 percent black and 32 percent Latino, Northwood is 24 percent black and 53 percent Latino, and Einstein is 20 percent black and 47 percent Latino.
The students said they were motivated to protest by Trump's divisive rhetoric. "We do not feel protected and we have to speak up for what we believe in".
Hundreds of students from about a dozen high schools in Oakland skipped classes Monday morning to demonstrate against Trump's election.

The Real Madrid superstar scored a penalty and missed another as well as notching a thunderous volley at the Estadio Algarve. With the clock ticking down, William Carvalho restored their lead before Ronaldo made up for his penalty miss to make it 3-1.
"This is honestly the best thing I've seen all week", said Shay Emmons, who saw the protest pass near the gym she owns on Southeast 6th Avenue and Madison Street and applauded participants. "What this protest is, is a march of solidarity to show that we will not stop fighting just because Donald Trump won".
"It is very hard to ensure the safety of children when they leave the safe confines of their school campuses", the LAPD statement read. But Portland, Oregon, has been the site of the most violent anti-Trump demonstrations, with a shooting and the arrest of 71 people on Saturday. "We are telling them that we don't stand for everything he stands for, and that we're going to keep him accountable throughout the entire presidency".
"After an hour in the stadium, students made a decision to leave campus with the objective of receiving more media attention", reported Montgomery Blair's student-run newspaper Silver Chips.
The students some who appeared to be middle school age walked off at least four campuses Monday to protest President-elect Donald Trump.
Police said both demonstrations were peaceful and the teens safely exercised their constitutional right to protest.
