Guidance for Educationally Disadvantaged Pupils.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
Some characteristics of the disadvantaged child are presented; the low socio-economic family is described; and some of the current myths perpetrated about this segment of society are examined. The disadvantaged child's suspicion of school and his unhappy experiences there require extra effort by the counselor. Ways in which the counselor can begin to explore the problem in his school are presented. Approaches and techniques for use with the disadvantaged child are presented. Major challenges to the counselor include: (a) the development of good home-school relationships, (b) the provision of remedial and tutorial services, (c) the expansion of educational and vocational horizons, and (d) the involvement of the entire educational team to achieve the goal of meaningful education for the disadvantaged child.
