Local parents will rally at Nelson’s Trafalgar Middle School this afternoon to co-incide with a visit from Education Minister Mike Bernier.
The school is slated for possible closure, along with others in the district, as SD8 grapples with its financial difficulties.
Tammy Everts is a parent of two children at South Nelson Elementary and is PAC co-chair.
She says the community needs to be united in its protest of the lack of funding coming from government for public education.
The rally is slated for 4pm at Trafalgar Middle School.
