Solving the Guidance Legislative Puzzle.
Drier, Harry N., Ed.; And Others
This five-part handbook is designed for use by individuals and groups interested in legislation related to guidance and counseling. Part I contains a chapter on the guidance implications of Titles I, II, and III of the Education Amendments of 1976 (Public Law 94-482) and a chapter on the historical and current perspective of guidance related legislation. Part II has four chapters which give an overview of comprehensive guidance programs, a detailed description of major guidance program functions (administration, planning, assessment, program development, evaluation, and guidance support), a description of special populations with reference to Title II, and a summary of the significant sections of federal legislation related to the extended role of guidance and counseling. Part III presents three chapters on the perspective of the legislative process and how to influence it, a "short course" on the operation of Congress, and ways in which counselors can gain the support of groups and agencies to influence legislation. A case study on how the State of Florida approaches the administration of federal legislation is included in Part IV. Part V gives an overview of grantsmanship and proposal development including funding sources and proposal elements. The concluding section gives suggestions on how to use this document for the legislative inservice training of counselors and other groups of individuals. Appendixes include the names and addresses of major organizations and agencies (e.g., nongovernmental agencies; congressional committees; agencies under the Office of Education; regional offices of education; National Advisory Councils; Office of Management and Budget; State Departments of Education; etc.) A glossary of legislative terms is also included.
