Guam - The Educational Learning Task Force committees continue to meet to discuss the various problems plaguing the Department of Education. The Community-Education Committee met Tuesday afternoon to discuss ways to make the most of limited resources, including using school grounds for after school programs, adult high school programs, and other cultural programs because village centers are not enough.

Committee chairperson Mayor Melissa Savares says concerns include security, liability, and water and power usage, saying, "There is a contract that they need to sign and rules that need to be followed and waiver liability because if somebody breaks a leg, we don't want them to sue the campus or DOE."

Savares says the committee is important because it supports the families. Parents without high school diplomas may not know how to help their children succeed in school.
