A Research Study on Special College Counseling for Non-White and Disadvantaged Students.
Wilson, Sodonia M.
The first follow-up study of the Special College Counseling Program had four objectives: (1) to show specifically what has happened to graduates in three high schools in the district in one year; (2) to show specifically what has happened to graduates in all high schools in the district in one year; (3) to evaluate counseling effectiveness by measuring respondents' attitudes and attempting to describe the relationship between counseling and, for example, career-satisfaction; and, (4) to develop a set of operational standards from the findings to better administer the district's programs. Data was obtained from surveys conducted as a part of field work to test the effectiveness of the program. The program population included 272 students who graduated from the Sequoia Union High School District, who have either matriculated in colleges and universities or who have initiated new-found careers in various sectors of the country. Several mailings and follow-up procedures produced 136 respondents who comprised the study sample. All non-white and low income white students are eligible for the program. All that are referred by the Special College Counselors at each school are accepted. Particularly all need a detailed individual attention in order to complete various types of forms. Particularly all need financial aid. Seventy-five percent of program participants from 1969 to October 1971 are now in college. (Author/JM)
