Examining Urban School Counseling Professionals' Perceptions of School Restructuring Activities.
A descriptive study was conducted that examined urban school counseling professionals' perception of school restructuring activities such as school-based management, community-school partnerships, and school-based family counseling. Professional school counselors (N=102) working in urban schools were surveyed. Several implications can be drawn from the results. School counselors could benefit by becoming more knowledgeable about the literature and issues surrounding school reform. Counselors need to explore the possibility of including course content that prepares new counselors to implement and evaluate school restructuring activities. It suggests that further studies addressing the extent to which school counselors are involved in urban school restructuring efforts would be helpful. Research on experiences of counselors who have participated in school restructuring programs such as EQUITY 2000 and the Coalition of Essential Schools could also be helpful.
