"Pushing-Up" or "Cooling-Out"? Israeli Counselors Guidance on Track Placement.
Resh, Nura; Erhard, Rachel
Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, v33 n4 p325-49 2002
Investigated Israeli 9th-graders' perceptions about messages conveyed by counselors while guiding them into a rigid high school track system. Student surveys indicated that while counselors were somewhat hesitant about giving very definitive messages, they still differentiated their messages by academic status and gender. Low achievers and girls, especially higher achievers, were being "cooled out" to a greater degree than all high achievers and boys. (SM)
