Response to the Report, "Evaluation of the Role and Functions of the Guidance Counselor," Produced by the New York State Office of Education Performance Review.
New York State Personnel and Guidance Association Journal, V10n2 p 40-9 1975
In this report the New York State Personnel and Guidance Association presents its response to the Report of the New York State Office of Education Performance Review (OEPR) entitled An Evaluation of the Role and Functions of the Guidance Counselor. The OEPR report was published in September 1974. The OEPR undertook the study to determine the actual role and functions of school counselors and the effectiveness of the services provided by school counselors across New York State. Findings were based upon questionnaires and interviews. The OEPR reports attempt to summarize the findings, and provide recommendations for the improvement of guidance services. The primary purposes of this Position Paper are: (1) to make counselors aware of the constructive aspects of the report, as well as its unsatisfactory aspects; (2) to enable counselors to respond effectively to the questions of administrators and school board members relative to the content of the report and the value of the recommendations; and (3) to assist counselors to communicate more adequately and cooperate with school board members and administrators in implementing the constructive aspects of the report.
