EXPANDING OPPORTUNITIES THROUGH GUIDANCE--OUTCOMES IN BRIEF OF A CONFERENCE FOR GUIDANCE WORKERS, GLEN FALLS, NEW YORK, FEBRUARY, 1961.
KLOPE, GORDON J.; AND OTHERS
THE ROLE OF GUIDANCE IN EXPANDING THE OPPORTUNITIES OF SOCIALLY AND ECONOMICALLY DEPRIVED YOUTH WAS DISCUSSED. SEVERAL GOALS, ALONG WITH METHODS OF THEIR IMPLEMENTATION WERE FORMULATED IN THE DISCUSSION. SCHOOLS SHOULD ACCEPT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF HELPING ALL STUDENTS TO FULFILL POTENTIAL ABILITIES. INSERVICE TRAINING FOR SCHOOL STAFF COULD ALERT STAFF TO THE STUDENTS' NEEDS AND TO MEANS OF IDENTIFYING AND ENCOURAGING ABILITY. AFTER-SCHOOL STUDY FACILITIES SHOULD BE MADE AVAILABLE FOR STUDENT USE. SCHOOL STAFF SHOULD BE WELL INFORMED ON THE BEHAVIORAL AND SOCIAL SCIENCES AND THEIR POTENTIAL RELATIONSHIP TO GUIDANCE PROGRAMS. SOCIALLY AND ECONOMICALLY DEPRIVED YOUTH SHOULD BE UNDERSTOOD IN TERMS OF THEIR CULTURAL MORES AND TRADITIONS. SCHOOL STAFF SHOULD ALSO BE WELL-INFORMED ON OCCUPATIONAL NEEDS AND EXPECTATIONS OF THE CHANGING JOB WORLD. THE STAFF, IN TURN, SHOULD INFORM THE STUDENTS OF VOCATIONAL IMPLICATIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES RELEVANT TO THE VARIOUS SUBJECT AREAS. COMMUNITY RESOURCES SHOULD BE UTILIZED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT, TAKING ADVANTAGE OF ALL SERVICES AVAILABLE TO INCREASE THE OPPORTUNITIES OF THE ECONOMICALLY OR SOCIALLY LIMITED CHILD. COOPERATIVE PLANNING AMONG COMMUNITY AGENCIES AND SERVICES WOULD BEST UTILIZE RESOURCES.
