The School Counselor: His Work Environment, Roles and Competencies.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
This paper is designed to help educators understand the conditions under which school counselors can make their greatest contributions to educational excellence. Ultimately, the sole justification for the presence of the school counselor is that his work contributes directly to both the specific and broad purposes of education. The author suggests that when a school counselor is employed, the administration, faculty, parents and community should expect him to have the ability to plan, counsel, consult and coordinate in a professional and accountable manner. The results of the counselor's efforts should facilitate the learning process for every pupil. The above 4 areas of expertise are elaborated and are the central focus of this paper. (RK)
