Letter: School has too many psychologists

I can understand restoring art, music and sports programs ["Schools look to add jobs," News, May 17]. What I do not understand is why schools, like Farmingdale High School, need four full-time teachers working in the psychological services department. Is this a trend?

When I went to high school, there was one school nurse, and that was it. The Farmingdale High School directory lists three nurses.

The salaries could probably be spent more wisely on other needed programs.
