A School Counseling Conference Focused on the Emerging Latino/a Population: A Model in the State of Georgia
Delgado-Romero, Edward A.; Matthews, Paul H.; Paisley, Pamela O.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v6 n3 p209-221 2007
The state of Georgia has experienced dramatic growth in the Latino/a population during the past decade, with a third of the new Latino/a population younger than the age of 18. Consequently, school systems were not prepared for the challenges posed by a Spanish-speaking immigrant population. The authors organized an interdisciplinary conference to holistically address the issues facing school counselors in their work with the emerging Latino/a population. Implications for other states dealing with an emerging Latino/a population are discussed. (Contains 2 notes.)
