Pre-College Counseling and the Black Student: A Report on the Invitational Workshop for In-Service School Counselors, Jackson State College, 1970.
Anzalone, J. S., Ed.
This report presents the papers and summarizes the group discussions of a workshop aimed at alleviating the problems of higher education access for large numbers of black and disadvantaged young people. The workshop brought together approximately 75 Mississippi school counselors and other participants for group sessions. The counselors, black and white, were selected from high schools in different geographical settings and from schools enrolling substantial numbers of black students. Discussions focused on the following: The American College Testing Program--registration and administration, interpretation of scores, and guidance material; imperative issues for counselors in the 1970's; admissions and curriculum; test preparation; financial aid; cultural factors that must be considered for effective counseling in integrated schools; and, workshop critique. The closing session of the workshop also included questions on the workshop and resource personnel responses. (RJ)
