The budget-strapped Philadelphia School District’s decision to layoff 1,202 noontime aides has prompted a hunger strike protest by two parents and two school district employees.

The school district faces a $304 budget shortfall that would need to be corrected by the end of June for the aides to be rehired for next school year.
