Principals and School Counselors: Separate Entities in Identifying Achievement Gaps in College Readiness for African American Students With Disabilities
Roberts, Laura A.; Bouknight, Tamisha M.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v18 n4 p284-293 Dec 2015
This case illustrates an example of how one school relied solely on aggregate data and failed to address the college readiness needs of African American students with disabilities. However, the way in which the school counselor identified this opportunity gap may not have been the most ethical approach, and now she is faced with a dilemma. This case emphasizes the importance of establishing communication between school building leaders and school counselors so that they can work collaboratively toward a common goal of identifying and addressing school achievement gaps in college readiness for underserved populations of students.
