A Local Study of the Roles and Functions of the Secondary School Counselor.
Schalesky, Deborah Elaine
This study was conducted to investigate the perspectives of the various populations served by the secondary school counselor concerning the roles and functions of that counselor. The Counselor Roles and Functions Questionnaire was administered to 9 counselors, 8 administrators, 56 teachers, 14 counselor educators, 178 students, 26 parents, 14 businesses, and 4 school board members. The scores for the six subscales (Counseling; Consulting; Development/Career Guidance; Evaluation and Assessment; Guidance Program Development, Coordination, and Management; and Administrative and Clerical) and the Total score were employed as dependent variables. The findings suggest that counselors and counselor educators rated the roles and functions of Counseling higher than did school board members. Counselors and counselor educators also rated the roles and functions of Consulting higher that did administrators. Counselors rated the roles and functions of Developmental/Career Guidance higher than did administrators and teachers. School board members rated the roles and functions of Guidance Program Development, Coordination, and Management higher than did students and businesses, and counselors and counselor educators rated these roles and functions higher than did businesses. Students rated the roles and functions of Administrative and Clerical higher than did counselors and counselor educators, and counselors rated these roles and functions higher than did counselor educators. Counselors and counselor educators rated the roles and functions of Consulting higher than did administrators and teachers. (NB)
