In September of 1958, the 85th Congress passed Public Law 85-864, the National Defense Education Act. The step had not been taken lightly. For months congressional committees had been studying alternative bills. Widespread discussion had occurred in circles where educators and the educated were represented. Many proposals had been examined and compared. Congress realized that the provisions of this law would have widespread and to some extent unpredictable effects on the whole pattern of American education. This report is an examination of the structure that was built upon title V(B) or the act during its first year. Part B authorized the establishment of counseling and guidance training institutes at colleges and universities for the purpose of improving the qualifications of secondary school personnel to engage in counseling and guidance. The authors of this report shall look first at the principles that guided the designers in their plans. They shall then turn their attention to the details of the structure itself, answering such questions as What? Who? Where? and How much? They shall then try to analyse the distinctive contributions to counselor education that this program has made. They shall grapple with the problems that were faced by the persons who planned and conducted this first round of institutes. They shall evaluate the outcomes as well as possible and try to determine how successfully the purposes of title V(B) of the National Defense Education Act have been achieved. This bulletin contains the following chapters: (1) The Broad Picture; (2) Facts and Figures; (3) A Closer Look; and (4) Looking Toward the Future. Appended are: (1) Title I (Sec. 101) and Title V, the National Defense Education Act of 1958; (2) Counseling and Guidance Training Institutes Registry Form; (3) Selected Time Schedules Representative of Institute Activities; and (4) Institutions Sponsoring Counseling and Guidance Training Institutes; Summer of 1959. Individual chapters contain footnotes. (Contains 6 figures and 7 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
