Can I just say.... chaplains are payed very well. Schools are given an amount of money and the school is basically given semi free reign to divvy hours to the Chaplain. Our school chaplain is paid $40 an hour - and yes I know. I'm on the Board that governs the program and their wage. This person has no real quals but is a religious leader.
I don't expect that each public school has their own social worker. But the funds from each chaplain would easily fund a 0.4 position in each school. Currently our social counsellor does around 12 schools! Imagine another 2 or 3! That would bring it down to 3 or 4 schools per counsellor.
As to the Chaplain or nothing, I get why smaller schools settle for someone. But that is what the Abbott government wanted IMO it was a way to force religious people into public schools under the premise of 'we can't get a social worker so at least it's something'.
