Teachers' Opinions of School Counseling Programmes in Nigerian Secondary Schools
Aluede, Oyaziwo; Egbochuku, Elizabeth
Educational Research Quarterly, v33 n1 p42-60 Sep 2009
Secondary school teachers' opinions about their school counselling programmes were investigated. The teachers were asked how they perceived the school counselling services being implemented in their schools, and how they rate the counselling activities provided by school counsellors in their schools. Results indicate that majority of the teachers are of the opinion that counselling programmes make positive contributions to the school's instructional programme, and the major responsibility of the school counselling programme was the provision of career information. The results also indicate that school counsellors should not reveal to teachers information that they receive concerning students' attitude towards the teachers. It was then advocated that a guidance policy be formulated for the school system that could make secondary school teachers appreciate the uniqueness of school counselling programmes.
