Participants in a 2010 march calling for no cuts in education funding make their way to the Ronald Reagan building.

There's no march involved, but expect to see plenty of teachers and students around Downtown on Friday afternoon for a rally aimed at getting the state to put more money into education.

In a sign that attendance may be high, LAUSD and other areas schools will be shortening the school day to allow teachers to participate without missing class.

Entertainment starts at 4pm, with the rally officially starting at 5.
