Guidance Services in the Functioning Middle School.
The following conclusions were reached after a study of the middle school years. (1) The middle school is an overwhelming success in operation. (2) Because of the age grouping and release of pressure from the secondary school, it has permitted the implementation of the philsophy of a transitional school. (3) The age grouping and educational philosophy requires a different focus for the guidance counselor's activities, necessitating a change in the areas of emphasis during his training. (4) The guidance requirements of the middle school indicate a need and the direction for the development of guidelines for preparation of counselors for the middle schools. (Author)
