Faces of the Future: School Counselors as Cultural Mediators
Portman, Tarrell Awe Agahe
Journal of Counseling & Development, v87 n1 p21-27 Win 2009
Twenty years ago, futurists examined the changing role of the school counselor and forecasted what the 21st-century school counselor would need to know. This article forecasts the future of school counseling in the next 20 years by focusing on expected diversity of K-12 students. Speculation on student enrollment based on projected trends and extrapolated data is used to describe the professional knowledge, awareness, and skills school counselors will need to touch the lives of the students of the future.
