Teachers in Jersey City took their protest straight to the board of education Wednesday night.

Teachers descended upon the Board of Education meeting to protest 200 proposed layoffs.

They say those layoffs would result in increased class sizes.

The head of the teacher's union said he understands if money has to be cut, but said that money should come from administration and non-essential programs.
