Some people aren't quietly accepting the imminent closure of Bishop Ford Central Catholic High School: aggrieved alumni, distraught parents of current students, and stunned parents who were planning to send their children to the school that their own parents sent them to for a Catholic education. 

Meet for what is shaping up to be a large "Rally to Save Bishop Ford" on Monday, April 28th, at 1:00 p.m., in front of the school. After the rally, everyone will walk over to the Diocese of Brooklyn Office, a block away on Prospect Park West.

Parents and alumni have been communicating with each other on the rally's Facebook event page. Many people are unhappy about the demise of the fifty-two-year-old school, announced just a few days ago without warning, and they have been busy mustering support for the rally. 

An additional way to voice your thoughts is to join the more than 1800 people who have signed a petition to "Keep Bishop Ford's Doors Open!" Leaving comments is encouraged.
