Letter: School counselors deserve support

I agree with the Moorhead School District counselors who recently wrote, “Address need for counselors.”

These hard-working, skilled and caring professionals, devoted to the well-being of all students, try to serve too many students each day. Actually, these professionals work in the 48th-ranked state in counselor to student ratio – 792 to 1.

Imagine if other hard-working, skilled and caring school professionals had to work within these ratios – what would the good residents of Minnesota demand?

With an increasing number of students coming to our schools with more risk factors, the work of school counselors becomes more and more important. Let’s support these important professionals in all the ways we can.
