Meeting Tomorrow's Challenge: A Message to Ohio's Counseling Professionals.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
The six national goals proposed at the Education Summit of 1989 and the ideas for reaching them delineated in "America 2000" are discussed in this document as they relate to school counseling in Ohio. Both "America 2000" and "Creating Opportunities for Success," Ohio's first annual report citing the state's progress towards these national goals, describe strategies to achieve a learning renaissance. After a list of the six national goals, the four parts of the national strategy is described, followed by a discussion of Ohio's commitment to the national goals which identifies five principles to serve as a guide in reaching them. The involvement of school guidance and counseling in achieving these goals is discussed, and it is noted that a planned guidance and counseling program identifies the results or outcomes to be achieved, contains a body of content, and uses varying intervention strategies to deliver this content to all students. Guidance as a shared responsibility with the community is emphasized in a separate section, and this is followed by a discussion of the responsibliity of counselor education focusing on the skills necessary for school counselors, and a description of initial efforts by counselors to reach the six national goals. The document concludes that "America 2000" and "Creating Opportunities for Success" seek learning and achievement for all students and that every guidance and counseling program can seek and plan for nothing less.
