A SURVEY OF PUBLIC SCHOOL ADULT GUIDANCE SERVICES IN FIFTY CITIES.
PRESGRAVES, JAMES S.
A QUESTIONNAIRE MEASURING ENROLLMENT OF POTENTIAL CLIENTS AND ADMINISTRATION OF PUBLIC SCHOOL ADULT GUIDANCE WAS SENT TO 50 CITIES. INFORMATION WAS RETURNED FROM 30 CITIES, AND INCLUDED DATA ON ADMINISTRATION, PUBLICITY, FINANCING, COUNSELING, TESTING, AND RECORDS. RESPONSES INDICATED COUNSELING SERVICES HAD BEEN OPERATING FOR A MEDIAN OF 10 YEARS IN 15 CITIES. AVERAGE AVAILABILITY OF COUNSELING WAS FIVE TO SIX HOURS PER DAY, FIVE DAYS A WEEK. MAJOR TYPES OF COUNSELING WERE EDUCATIONAL, VOCATIONAL, AND PERSONAL-SOCIAL, WHILE A FEW PLACEMENT AND REFERRAL SERVICES WERE PROVIDED. VISUAL MEDIA WAS MOST GENERALLY USED TO PUBLICIZE GUIDANCE SERVICES, AND MOST WERE DEPENDENT ON LOCAL SUPPORT TO SOME DEGREE, AND STATE SUPPORT, WITH ONLY FOUR DEPENDING UPON FEDERAL FUNDS. SINCE THE MAJORITY OF ENROLLEES WERE DOING ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY WORK, IT WAS ASSUMED MANY WERE SCHOOL DROPOUTS IN NEED OF GOOD GUIDANCE SERVICES. SINCE ONLY 15 OF THE RESPONDING PROGRAMS HAD PUBLIC SCHOOL ADULT GUIDANCE SERVICES, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT MORE AND BETTER GUIDANCE PROGRAMS FOR ADULTS ARE NEEDED. THIS MASTERS THESIS IS AVAILABLE FROM UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND, VIRGINIA. 98 PAGES. (PT)
