SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STRENGTHENING COUNSELING SERVICES FOR DISADVANTAGED YOUTH. (TITLE SUPPLIED).
LOVE, RUTH B.
THE EDUCATIONAL CHALLENGE IN AMERICA'S CHANGING SOCIETY IS TO BRING EQUAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES TO ALL. SCHOOL COUNSELORS MUST EXPAND AND STRENGTHEN THE SERVICES THEY OFFER. THE COMMON DENOMINATOR AMONG SO-CALLED "DISADVANTAGED" GROUPS IS POVERTY, AND EDUCATORS MUST UNDERSTAND BOTH THE PROBLEMS AND THE POSITIVE QUALITIES OF THE POVERTY CULTURE. NEW, POSITIVE APPROACHES MUST BE USED IN A MIDDLE-CLASS-ORIENTED EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IN ORDER TO SUCCEED WITH DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS. FAMILY FOCUS IS A NECESSARY PART OF COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROGRAMS. LISTS OF RECOMMENDATIONS RESULTING FROM A SERIES OF WORKSHOPS DEALING WITH EDUCATION OF THE DISADVANTAGED CHILD ARE PRESENTED TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND TO COORDINATORS OF GUIDANCE SERVICES.
