With the constant rise of head lice going on in all schools, not all parents can afford to be buying treatments every week, and while some chemists offer lotion and combs for free, this isn’t available everywhere, and some parents feel ashamed to go collect it anyway. If nit nurses were able to work in schools, it would save parents time and money by helping them get rid of head lice, and hopefully tackle the constant problem in the future. As a parent myself of 4 children ages ranging  from 4-15 and speaking to alot of other parents I feel the time is now upon us to help get this back into our schools and our community. While we all understand that the government has to make many cut backs, I feel this should be one that they bring back. This would create at least 1 full time job for someone in each primary school, help families that are already struggling financially, but more importantly, would make a massive change in the head lice epidemic we currently have, and keep it low, which is much needed at the moment. No child should be singled out, especially for something like head lice, but given that’s how they spread so quickly, if a child is found with them, they could see the nit nurse, get it sorted there and then, so then parents aren’t needed to have time off work, and risk losing their jobs and will cause less disruption for our children and their education.
