Title:2011 National survey of school counselors: School counseling at a crossroads
Source:http://media.collegeboard.com/digitalServices/p...
Date:2011
Organization:National Office for School Counselor Advocacy (NOSCA)
Short Description:This survey sought insight into how school counselors view their roles and missions and spend their days, as researchers believe counselors might be more strategically deployed to better serve students.
Annotation:School counselors’ roles have been as diverse as the students they serve, often resulting in an unclear mission, a lack of accountability for student success, and having school counseling seen as “a profession in search of identity.” Consequently, even though there are nearly as many school counselors as administrators across America, counselors have been largely left out of the education reform movement. To understand the perspectives of counselors, the College Board Advocacy & Policy Center, Civic Enterprises, and Peter D. Hart Research Associates collaborated to survey 5,308 middle and high school counselors, which is the largest and broadest national survey of these education professionals to date. The survey sought insight into how they view their roles and missions and spend their days, as researchers believe counselors might be more strategically deployed to better serve students. Researchers also were interested in their perspectives on measures of accountability and education policies and practices that could strengthen their roles and the systems in which they work. Researchers hoped to learn what challenges they face and what solutions might be found to better leverage the extraordinary resource that school counselors represent.
