Social Services in American High Schools.
Farrar, Eleanor; Hampel, Robert L.
Phi Delta Kappan, v69 n4 p297-303 Dec 1987
School social services may seem highly bureaucratic, with staff members filling narrowly defined roles. In practice, the delivery of social services to high school students faced with pregnancy, alcoholism, divorce, suicide, and other problems is exceedingly informal. Considerable discretion and autonomy are needed to serve students with problems that are hard to diagnose and treat. Includes two references. (MLH)
