Product Evaluation of the Counseling and Career Guidance Component of the Detroit Desegregation Court Order.
The goal of the Counseling and Career Guidance Component of the Detroit (Michigan) school desegregation plan was to improve student effectiveness in the areas of personal, social, academic, and career development. Major program functions included individual and group counseling, program selection and placement guidance, career guidance, and referral and information services. The Counseling and Career Guidance Component was evaluated using the responses of students, staff, and parents to survey questions. About 50 percent of the students reported receiving counseling and guidance services. Of these students, 80 percent reported that the services were helpful. Staff survey results indicated that 90 percent of elementary, middle, and high school teachers conferred with a counselor concerning a student at least once during the year. Two thirds of the teachers felt that the conferences were effective. Parent survey results showed that 64 percent of elementary parents and 85 percent of middle and high school parents talked with a school counselor during the year. (Author/MK)
