I read in here with the alarm of what is happening at the Tennant Creek High School. Without doubt there needs to be intervention in a hurry with Assistance being given to support teachers and students.
I believe that the Department of Education should look at engaging Adam Drake and his Balanced Choice team to undertake interventionist work.
Adam and his team have been instrumental in working to overcome situations of discord and conflict. They are highly skilled in negotiation and in sorting out issues in a way that causes people to recognise their part in things that need to be rectified.
I would recommend the engagement of Adam and his team to help defuse the situation and to permanently resolving issues at Tennant Creek.
