Ten places are picked out for description in this monograph, including some 4 township high schools in the State of Illinois. In addition to these there will be found a description of the guidance work in the five cities of Boston, Chicago, Providence, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, and in the independent Milwaukee Vocational School. The educational and vocational guidance given in individual high schools in each of these cities is described fully. In some places the service has been attached to the city government. In other places it was from the beginning more closely connected to the school system. There is generally a marked tendency for it to be found in the schools. In some of these schools there seems to be no distinction made between the work in administration and the functions in guidance. For instance, they are closely connected in the New Trier Township High School. In the Joliet Township High School, on the other hand, they are clearly differentiated: The last chapter summarizes four main types of guidance activities and describes guidance in a small rural school in California. The conclusion is that guidance may exist in schools of any size if its necessity is fully understood by the principal and faculty of the school. (Individual chapters contain footnotes. Contains 20 figures and 1 table.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
