Status of Guidance and Counseling in the Elementary School.
Van Hoose, William H.; Kurtz, Sister Marie
This study investigated some aspects of elementary school guidance and counseling in the 50 states and the four American territories. Specifically such matters as number of counselors employed, their sources of financial support, professional background, certification and state standards were examined through the use of a questionnaire. Response was 100%. Results of this study were as follows: 6,041 counselors are now working in elementary schools in the 50 states, District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. The majority are supported in part by federal funds with 36% being supported locally. Of the 6,041 counselors, 85-90% are trained in guidance and counseling. To date 23 states indicated certification requirements specifically for counselors at the elementary level. (Author)
