Its time to evaluate whether we need, or want psychologists, and social workers in our school systems.

All they do is cause stigma to be commonplace in our schools. Perhaps that is the reason there is so much violance within our school.

Young children are at a very delicate age, and peer group pressures are high. For psychs to use demeaning "diagnoses" that they themselves barely understand, is ludicrous.

What happened to the school nurse of times past, that we all trusted, and who had so much common sense?? We certainly need the school nurse back, and the meddling psychs out.

Could it be possible that our schools are so violent because of our culture? I'm not talking about the realistic fantasies portrayed in video games, the lyrics in music, or shootouts in movies.
Our culture is the culture of work over family. Two parents at work. Kids in daycare. Kids who are left on their own after school can do what they want.
Does the news in this country influence kids to be violent?

Does the President(not just George Bush Jr.) an influence on violence? Why do we think we can solve our foreign problems with violence and war instead of mediation and diplomacy?
Why wouldn't kids think they could solve their problems with violence?
Who do kids look to for role models?
Parents? Teachers? Leaders?
We all are guilty of condoning violence by association.
Our militaristic solutions to our foreign problems is seen by many to be our only option.
The notion that councilors cause violence is ridiculous.
Why would Obama have been ridiculed for speaking directly with Iran if this wasn't the case.
W e talked directly with the U.S.S.R during the cold war why not with Iran
Do you think that removing the only filter to sift out kids who display the signs of violence in schools would eliminate violence in schools?
