Counseling: Counseling High School Students for Postsecondary and Workplace Success. The Progress of Education Reform. Volume 9, Number 3
Dounay, Jennifer
Education Commission of the States (NJ3)
Relatively little policy activity has focused on the key role of counselors in providing the guidance students need to make informed decisions about their post-high school options. This issue of "Progress of Education Reform" takes a closer look at research related to: (1) The variation in access of college counseling across schools and the impact of schools, districts, postsecondary institutions and states on the availability and type of college counseling; (2) The types of information traditionally underserved students need to prepare for postsecondary education; and (3) The varying types of guidance students receive based on their academic pathway or ethnic background. (Contains 2 endnotes.)
