Guidance for Urban Disadvantaged Youth.
Hallberg, Edmond C., Ed.
Only within the past decade have the special problems of socially, economically, and culturally different urban youth received some of the special attention that is needed. The wide range of guidance and counseling efforts directed toward problems of urban youth are covered in this volume of reprints from American Personnel and Guidance Association journals. They present a broad spectrum of the problems and some possible solutions. Educators' failures to accept cultural differences have placed additional burdens on the urban disadvantaged youth. Research and observations during the 1960's revealed that many disadvantaged youth are not deviant but different. And so are their opportunities. The materials reprinted here consist principally of writings by guidance specialists in the areas of learning and educational opportunity, counseling, testing, and vocational guidance. (MF)
