BEST way to handle behaviour problems.
Four secondary schools - Croxteth comprehensive; De La Salle RC High school; Shorefields School, Toxteth, and Parklands School,Speke, have use of the Best teams which consist of a clinical manager, two social workers, a nurse,personal and community development officer,police officer and data ad min worker.
Mr Roberts said: ``It's an expensive resource but it's great to have something like this at our disposal.
``There are no miracle cures but things that could have taken months to sort out, can now be done in days.
``It costs over pounds 1min salaries for these schools alone but ultimately the pay-off for society will be less crime, youth disorder and street crime.
``If parents who are worried about their child's behaviour live in an area with a Best team then great, but if not they should contact the education welfare service or the social inclusion team on 0151-233 3000.''
