The Cost of Guidance Services in Ohio Secondary Schools. A Study of NDEA--Participating Schools, 1965-1966.
Hopfengardner, Jerrold D.; And Others
Literature seldom alludes to the topic of appropriate expenditures for guidance services. A study was conducted of 404 of the 405 Ohio public school districts that participated in the National Defense Education Act (NDEA) of 1958, Title V-A program for reimbursement for guidance and counseling during the 1965-1966 academic year. Data was available on guidance programs from NDEA applications and affidavits. Conclusions of this study were: (1) a total of 1,611 counselors in Ohio qualified for reimbirsement under NDEA during the 1965-1966 academic year, (2) the state mean pupil-counselor ratio was 421.89/1, (3) the mean State counselor's salary was $9,623 and (4) a positive correlation was found to exist between school enrollment and cost of guidance per pupil. Recommendations listed for further studies in this area are: (1) non NDEA schools should also be studied, (2) size-cost-quality factors affecting the operation of school guidance programs should be studied, and (3) administrators should study their individual programs to determine costs.
