Woah.

Protesters flooded the streets of Philadelphia on Thursday to protest the School Reform Commission’s recent decision to cancel the teachers’ union contract.

Officials say the move will require members to pay into their medical plan and should save the School District of Philadelphia about $50 million a year.

But parents, teachers and even students reportedly joined forces to protest the decision, where they completely blocked off Broad Street, where the SRC is scheduled to meet on Thursday night.
