Teachers' Perceptions of School Counselor Effectiveness: Collaborating for Student Success.
Education, v125 n2 p259 Win 2004
This study was designed to survey K-12 classroom teachers (N = 188) across the Southwest as to perceptions of the effectiveness of school counseling services in their educational setting. The results revealed that overall teachers reported satisfaction with counseling services, although satisfaction did vary across levels (elementary, middle school/junior high, high school) depending on the specific service area. Also despite rating certain service areas as strengths, teachers still see considerable room for improvement in a variety of specific areas in order for school counselors to work more effectively and successfully with all students in the 21st century. Implications for future research, training, and collaborative teacher/school counselor partnerships are also discussed.
