How School Counselors Could Benefit from E-Government Solutions: The Case of Paperwork.
Sabella, Russell A.
The U.S. government has tackled many problems which have plagued its effectiveness and efficiency to serve its citizens with technology solutions. Electronic government, or e-Government, is the expression used to describe how the U.S. government attempts to increase productivity and reduce costs by using Internet-based technology. More specifically, e-Government tries to enhance the citizen's access to government information and services, and attempts to provide new ways to increase citizen participation in the democratic process. If government also made available to schools some of the technology solutions used for themselves, valuable benefits to school counselors would result. This article briefly describes one e-Government initiative and the potentially positive impact on school counseling if it were implemented in schools. (Author)
