Sept 23, 2018, VOCM, Newfoundland: School System Needs More Counselors And Psychologists: Ingram http://vocm.com/news/school-system-needs-more-counselors-and-psychologists-ingram/ Teachers say there are things which can be done to make our school system safer. NLTA President, Dean Ingram, was responding to an altercation at Prince of Wales Collegiate in St. John’s last week which resulted in several students going to hospital after being hit with some type of caustic spray. Ingram says the school system has challenges today that it did not have 10 or 15 years ago, evident by the attention being paid to youth mental health. The NLTA president says more counselors and psychologists are needed in the system.
