WDT: Counselors Are Available...Even Five Years Later

       Five years after a 12 year old boy was murdered, possibly at the hand of an ex live-in boyfriend, students at Potsdam High School are being offered counseling.
      The trial of Oral Hillary should be a talking point for high school students...A discussion about making decisions and that decisions have consequences.
       As for "counseling" over grief, that should be something for families, teachers or clergy to handle if the need arises.

Once a school system gets a program going, it never dies. It's for the children.

I stand corrected, 2:29. lol
I know they have really strong programs in bullying and anti-phobic behavior.

8:39, while those programs are strong currently, they are severely underfunded and funding is being cut further as we speak. Please call your assemblywoman and senatorwoman and tell them to fund the schools. We may have to cut the condoms on cucumber curriculum if you don't. Your voice matters !
