Educational Reform and the School Counselor. ERIC Digest.
Perry, Nancy S.
School counselors have always considered themselves to be change agents. Historically, that change has been related to helping an individual become aware of behaviors or attitudes that might be affecting his/her success and then guiding that individual into new ways of acting or thinking. This skill is transferable to affecting change in the learning environment or the school climate. School counselors need to position themselves as facilitators of that change. Reform approaches in which school counselors can become involved include: site-based management; privatization of schools; and restructuring within schools such as team teaching, flexible scheduling, integrated learning, and cooperative learning.
