In school-funding push, don't shortchange students' mental health
from The Seattle Times
Tomas Garcia has broad shoulders, three earrings and fashionably ripped jeans. His appearance gives no indication there's anything but good things ahead for the Roosevelt High School senior. But by his own admission, he's lucky to be at school. As a freshman, he sought out mental-health counseling at school when his parents separated, and again as a junior, when his rebellion was overtaking his studies. "If I hadn't come in here, I don't think I'd be on track to graduate, to be honest," said Garcia.
