Date Posted: 2001-05-04

The Board of Education in Naha City has published a report on activities of “Educational counseling supporters” started last September in order to help children with troubles by having someone to talk with.

During its first year, the program was started in 17 elementary schools with 18 counseling supporters who are mostly retired teachers and women in the community, and who are able to talk and have fun with children. Over last six months, they reported 658 consultations with students who refuse to go to school, or have other problems. The report says that most of those children started going back to school, after supporters went to their houses to help them. Responding to the positive results, the Naha City Board of Education decided to assign supporters to all elementary schools in Naha.
