Exploration of the Occupational Guidance Role of the Public Secondary School Guidance Counselor.
Dawson, C. G.
The focus of this report is the role expectations of the guidance counselor position as held by selected faculty groups. The two major tasks are: (1) to ascertain the extent of group agreement on the occupational guidance role of secondary school counselors, and (2) to determine the relationships of selected variables to the degree of such agreement. Data were obtained from principals, counselors, general education teachers, and vocational education teachers from a random sample of all North Carolina high schools having a 12th grade, a vocational education position, and a guidance counselor. It was concluded that principals, counselors, and teachers have similar conceptions of the occupational guidance role of the counselors. There is some slight disagreement on some of the role expectations listed on the 60-item instrument used. Those variables related to this agreement or disagreement are the attitude of the counselor to occupational education, the type of counselor, and the frequency of interaction between counselors and general education teachers.
