A Survey of Attitudes of Elementary Educators Concerning Elementary Counseling.
Berben, Emily A.
This paper presents a survey of attitudes held by elementary educators concerning counseling in the elementary schools. A questionnaire was completed by 200 elementary educators in five Wisconsin cities. Participants ranged from special instructors, through kindergarten, primary, and intermediate grade teachers, and principals. Some 94% believed elementary counseling is needed, with more males feeling so than females, and more such feeling among newer educators than among career educators. No statistically significant differences were found between the views of subgroups, either in the belief that counseling is needed, or the extent to which such programs should be carried out. (BP)
