The Student Counseling Program: Criticism and Analysis.
Dyste, Ron
In the spring of 1968, Los Angeles City College inaugurated a program designed to test the efficacy of peer counseling for students from low income families of minority ethnic background. The first 11 months of the program's operation are reviewed in this paper which is written by one of the original 29 students hired as counseling assistants. Emphasis is on the internal development of the program and the problems encountered as the students who were involved organized their efforts toward accomplishing goals--which the author found easier to state than to realize. The effects of student power, salary, and idealism as motivating forces behind the program are discussed in detail, and possibilities for improving the program are included. See also ED 032 045.
