Asking 'Where Does Our Money Go,' and 'I feel like a Child Left Behind' a group of Utica students are using this day off of school to put a civics class lesson into practice by 'occupying' the Utica City School offices on Memorial Parkway.

Our news-gathering partner WIBX reports that

almost three dozen students are asking state leaders like Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi to help them ensure that Utica gets its fair share of funding from the Governor.

14-Year old organiser Trinh Truong thought up the event a few days ago which she organized through social media.
