Counseling Survey: Crook County Middle School.
Zachow, Kathleen; Carter, Gary
This paper reports the results of a counseling survey completed by 523 middle school students at Crook County Middle School, Prineville, Oregon, to provide data regarding student concerns in the areas of health and growth, personality, school, home and family, friends, and the future. Results are reported for each of the six categories by grade (sixth, seventh, or eighth), sex, and class. Class concerns given are the total scores for boys and girls in a grade. The top concerns for each division are listed, similarities and differences in concerns for grade and sex are noted, and comments are included for each category. Findings are presented showing that differences between sexes or grades were not significant and that major concerns reported were: (1) appearance, weight, and physical development (health and growth); (2) mistakes made, temper, and not being smart enough (personality); (3) getting poor grades/not passing (school); (4) communications and independence issues (home and family); (5) clothes, having a boy/girl friend, and being bored (friends); and (6) how to earn money, nuclear war, what to do after high school, and what to be in adulthood (future). The 10 items of least concern to students and the 10 items of most concern are listed and five recommendations based on these findings are suggested. The counseling survey is included. (NB)
