Skip to comments.Obama to Put More 'Counselors' in Schools
Posted on 01/16/2013 10:24:38 AM PST by Nachum
President Barack Obama will put more "counselors" in school to help thwart gun violence. According to a background briefer provided by the White House, Obama hopes to add an additional 1,000 "school resource officers and counselors."
From the White House's document:
PUT UP TO 1,000 MORE SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICERS AND COUNSELORS IN SCHOOLS AND HELP SCHOOLS INVEST IN SAFETY: Putting school resource officers and mental health professionals in schools can help prevent school crime and student-on-student violence. School resource officers are specially trained police officers that work in schools. When equipped with proper training and supported by evidence-based school discipline policies, they can deter crime with their presence and advance community policing objectives. Their roles as teachers and counselors enable them to develop trusting relationships with students that can result in threats being detected and crises averted before they occur. School psychologists, social workers, and counselors can help create a safe and nurturing school climate by providing mental health services to students who need help. Not every school will want police officers or additional school counselors, but we should do what we can to help schools get the staff they determine they need to stay safe.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Gotta have somebody for the kids to report their gun owning parents to.
IIRC, the last several mass shootings were by people who were out of public school by several years.
Exactly. As the federal government extends it's tenticles into the local schools you just have to wonder who will they be reporting to? Where will their loyalties lie. Will they be carrying guns?
lemme guess are they Unionized? Purty soon they’ll be more teachers assistants counselors head shrinkers etc than kids in the gubmint schools
Tell your kids to be careful what they do and say in school If they are declared mentally ill or unstable it will get reported to police and they will try and go after your guns.
Says all you need to know about the liberal fascists that they’d rather employ “grief counselors” for after the tragedy, than employ guards to prevent the tragedy.
Counselor = Inquisitor
Typical of the Dems, the Socialist Democrats I mean. The answer is always more loyalists, more Democrat voters by providing jobs in government for more votes. Everything they do is towards the goal of becoming the majority they have never been. It’s all for votes.
For them to just bulldoze the Constitution as they are also doing, but less a pace than they could if they didn’t want to give the illusion of Democracy would be counter productive to their goals. (”H” the Dems don’t even understand what a Republic is.)
Why don't we turn down the offer of help and hire our own helpers, under our supervision?
All of the functions which we pay the federal government to do for us which we can do for ourselves should be returned to the local level. They would then have less leverage to boss us around. They are making us work for them with our own money. And doing a piss poor job of it.
Only 20 new ‘counselors’ per state, eh?
Better yet, put your kids in private day schools or home school...
Adam Lanza was 20 years old and "home schooled". All of this "school based counseling" would not have done a thing to stop his actions. Typical Federal program, throw bushels of cash in the general direction of a problem, hire more unionized people, and the original problem remains, untouched.
The Prussian style school system.
Have your kids raised by the state.
For use by the State.
The Prussian system instituted compulsory attendance, specific training for teachers, national testing for all students (used to classify children for potential job training), national curriculum set for each grade and mandatory kindergarten.
If they are declared mentally ill or unstable it will get reported to police and they will try and go after your guns.
I think that is the least of your worries. They will go after the parents for neglect, they will go after the kids, and they will go after your guns. The family will be crushed to pieces under the authority of these counselors. Your kids say one wrong thing and the whole family will lose everything.
You might be thinking impossible, never let it happen, but in 6 months you will remember this post and be just shaking your head or hopefully your fist.
This is bad. This is very bad.
Oh...because he grabbed your buns...
But that's merely a friendly gesture.
Do you feel like killing Jeff sometimes?
Mandatory counseling for everyone coming to you soon.
I abhor these counseling "experts". They do more damage than letting kids ride things out themselves.
From the documentary.
The 14 year old girl bragging about she and several other girls in the camp being pregnant. Then telling her mother to take it up with the gestapo if you don’t like it.
I don’t have to watch the video and what I wrote wasn’t hyperbole. I was being very serious.
When I was first married my in laws were from Germany. My mother-in-law came to the US, when she was smuggled out of Germany at the age of 16, to come here and live with her Aunt. Her mother was able to immigrate after the war. They were a rich family back then before the war. She talked about walking down her homes marble staircase at the time, troops everywhere and bombs falling.
And she talked a little about the Hitler Youth and how her parents thought it best to get her out of the country. Can you even imagine...paying smugglers to get your child out of the country?
My father-in-law was sent here too, but he was old enough to enlist and he went back to fight Hitler.
They accomplished several of their goals with the Youth Programs.
Which is why Progressives today like the Head Start Program or the 9352 other damn school programs or whatever.
Which is why it turns my stomach when I hear "We need moar Teechurs!!!"
The only reason they want that is to increase the indoctrination.
(know your political officers)
The Commissaire Politique (political commissary) first appeared in the French Revolution (178999), guarding it against anti-Revolutionary (ideological) thought and action.
NSFOs were Nationalsozialistischen Führungsoffiziere (National Socialist Guidance or Indoctrination Officers). By the end of the war just about every unit of battalion size and above had at least one.
Zampolits, Politruk or political commissar was the supervisory political officer responsible for the political education (ideology) and organization, and loyalty to the Soviet government.
American schools have guidance counselors, intervention officers, resource officers, etc. Wise parents tell their children to speak with them as little as possible, the same way they would talk to a policeman questioning them about their behavior or their family. That is, don’t tell them anything.
It is one of the best Documentaries I have ever seen. Period.
Can you even imagine...paying smugglers to get your child out of the country?
I will do you one better, my Father and that side of the family are Jews from Germany. Just before World War 2 most of my Family (including both sides of my Grandparents) fled into Switzerland and stayed there for the remainder of the war.
They settled in West Germany after the war, when they discovered that just about everyone they ever knew, including family who didn't make it out, was Dead.
While my Father wasn't born until 1954 you bet that Running from their homes in Eastern Germany had a profound effect on the way my Grandparents raised him.
My wife has been an elementary school counselor for 15+ years. This isn’t anything new... Most every school in Georgia already has them.
Private schools have counselors too... Nothing new here.
We are seeing the Gestapo of the Mulatto Messiah placed now to make sure you THINK like they want to indoctrinate (and have been for the past 50 years) at ALL levels of edumacation we have now.
NOWHERE do they address the root cause, which is the moral depravity, government-dependence, and "gimme what he's got" mentality we have today because of the breakdown of the Nuclear Family, the un-married parenting of yewts, and fathers who not only are not identified, but are NEVER intending to lead a household nor provide monetary support or moral guidance.
There is NO moral compass amongst the inner-city tribal parasites and, yet, we take the earnings of PRODUCTIVE MEMBERS OF SOCIETY, and hand it out for Obama Phones, Walkin'-around-money, and Nike Air Jordan's.
Obammunist snoops. Coerce da kids to rat out the parents.
DHS or some other federal armed guards. The tentacles of the fedgov with weapons now have access to ALL the children for their “protection”. What a national hostage crisis that would be to all at once have orders from the oval office to congregate and “protect” all the children in the country.
I got your kids. Do what I say and no one gets it. See? (in the voice of Edward G. Robinson)
The documentary kinda makes you kind of wonder what kind of programming the Nazis performed in the schools which would encourage a child to go after his mother with a dagger.
Soviet mental health “care.” In Britian, they put info on your political correctness (mental health) in your school file.
Gosh, Americans are headed for some serious abuse.
