If we have more consequences, will we need counselors?

Imagine elementary schools, middle schools and high schools with zero school counselors. Currently we have 12,444 students across 13 elementary, nine middle and three high schools. For all those students, Moore County has 35 school counselors.

Home schools do not have counselors, and their graduates are among the best in the world. And they cost taxpayers nothing. When will taxpayers finally be able to opt-out forced funding of government schools and colleges?

How do you know home schooled children don't need counselors? Who is looking out for them?

Sally Larson

Kent, you never answer these questions which makes me think you don't know. You just spew stuff without knowing what you are talking about.

Kent once again makes several assertions without any proof. That's pretty much all he ever does. I'll now make an assertion: Kent is an ignorant, arrogant, self-righteous fool. Prove me wrong Kent.
