– Welfare Officers must take up slack

Proper advice for students, particularly as it relates to their subject options, should not be optional. In fact, it is imperative that the public education system has in place a cadre of personnel capable of offering this crucial advice.

According to Chairman of the Commission, Mr. Ed Caesar, “Our members are suggesting that if there can’t be a welfare person in a school, there must be a Welfare Officer responsible for a cluster of no more than five schools in every region.”
