A rally was held outside the Centre for Education in Edmonton Monday after three aboriginal liaison workers were let go.
The workers had helped counsel aboriginal students, organize traditional events and help give aboriginal students a voice — services that rally organizer Alana Boysis said play a very important role.
“They work with the families, they actually encourage the families to come as a group to the school and encourage the child to stay in school.”
Parents say the absence of the three positions will make a big difference for aboriginal students.
