Guam - Teachers with more experience are best suited to teach struggling students. That was the consensus at Saturday's village meeting at Ordot-Chalan Pago Elementary School. According to Governor's Educational Learning Task Force reform committee chair Troy Torres, the opposite is happening in the current public school system.

"That's a perfect example between the system that we have now and the system we need to move to, one that is focused on the achievement of students, and where the decisions of the department are based off the needs of students and nobody else," he said.

Torres adds that new teachers often need mentorship and may not be successful at teaching struggling students. The series of village meetings will continue throughout the central and northern villages throughout July.
