Title:School counselors literature and landscape review: The state of school counseling in America
Organization:National Office for School Counselor Advocacy (NOSCA)
Short Description:The purpose of this document is threefold: first, to provide a review of the available research on this under-researched and under-leveraged element of the education system; second, to create a resource that is useful to practitioners and to the public; and third, to inform a report that will both incorporate the findings of a nationally representative survey of school counselors, and make recommendations for paths forward.
Annotation:Counselors are uniquely positioned to address these key gaps in education and workforce development. As such, the purpose of this document is threefold: first, to provide a review of the available research on this under-researched and under-leveraged element of the education system; second, to create a resource that is useful to practitioners and to the public; and third, to inform a report that will both incorporate the findings of a nationally representative survey of school counselors, sponsored by the College Board and conducted by Peter D. Hart Research Associates, and make recommendations for paths forward. The findings presented here review current and historical research, statistics, reports, studies, evaluations, surveys, trends and gaps, and other information relevant to the work and role of the school counselor today. In all, counseling is a less well-researched area in comparison to other topics in education, which seems misaligned with the potential impact that school counselors could have on students’ educational success.
