Students across the nation today are saying enough is enough. They're just plain fed up with the rising cost of education. They're protesting higher tuition1 cuts in student services and reductions in funding for higher education.


This is Atlanta, Georgia where the university system plans a 35 percent tuition hike and a possible $1,000 student fee.


In Colorado, lawmakers are looking at cutting $1.3 billion from their budget and higher education appears to be a key target.


The movement to stop education cuts and tuition hikes came out of California. Fees at California's community colleges are up 30 percent this year and $1 billion plus is being cut from the state's university system.


More nationwide demonstrations2 are actually expected today. An Internet blog called "Student Activism" says 122 events are planned in 33 states.


And it's not just students who are raising the red flag about the future of education. Teachers in California say the state's budget troubles and education cuts have put so much stress on them that it's hard to teach.


LUPE HERNANDEZ, PRINCIPAL, MAYWOOD ELEMENTARY: You know, our teachers really work hard because we have had such great success. It's hard for them. They are staying here longer. They -- they are in fear of what is next.


LORENA CISNEROS, TEACHER: It's just too many students that are -- that will be without an efficient teacher because you're stressed, you're thinking of your bills that you have to pay, you're thinking of your mortgage3. You're thinking of your own family.

It's very hard for all the children to learn when we have a stressed teacher.


WHITFIELD: The California Department of Finance4 says funding for higher education is at its lowest level in at least 27 years.
