Charley Cass is back on Anchored in Education to talk this time about the value of school social workers and counselors. Charley, a three time podcast guest and I agree that too often social workers and counselors are overlooked for everything they do for students and families. This isn’t intentional, but we must make sure to get better at recognizing the value they bring to a school environment.
