Kelly Becker started this petition to Garfield Students and

Garfield has approximately 1800 students and 4 counselors, which breaks down to 400-500 students per counselor. This means there is a lack of personal and effective attention, which we believe can seriously inhibit a student's success during and after high school. The reason for the lack of counselors, and further, counselors who actually work with students, is largely because of a lack of funding to Garfield in general. In an effort to fight this problem, we plan to circulate a petition to the district to give our counseling department more money so that they can better serve Garfield’s student body.
