Mandate Guidance Counsellors in Pennsylvania
As it stands right now, school counsellors are not required to be present within the Pennsylvania School District. This means that K-12 schools may not have guidance counsellors inside their school walls. This is a problem. With recent school shooting events and teen suicide rates reaching an all time high, children need someone around them who they can feel comfortable talking to. School Counsellors are trained to notice signs of depression and/or dangerous tendencies. Please help mandate school guidance counsellors in the Pennsylvania School District to further protect our children so they are properly supported throughout childhood and their teenage years.
