College Counseling in Charter High Schools: Examining the Opportunities and Challenges
Farmer-Hinton, Raquel L.; McCullough, Ruanda Garth
High School Journal, v91 n4 p77-90 Apr-May 2008
Through analyses of counselor interview data, the authors highlight the challenges to and opportunities of college counseling in a recently-chartered college preparatory high school. The findings suggest that the charter school framework provides counselors with innovative organizational structures to foster college counseling and student social supports, but the organizational challenges of sustaining a new school distracts counselors from reflecting on and implementing a comprehensive college counseling model.
