The School Counselor's Role in School Dropout Prevention
White, Susan Williams; Kelly, F. Donald
Journal of Counseling & Development, v88 n2 p227-235 Spr 2010
The role of the school counselor has undergone numerous revisions over the past few decades. The current emphasis on accountability and academic performance of students has forced counselors to scrutinize their role in promoting students' academic success and school completion. In this article, the authors review the problem of school dropout from the school counselor's perspective and offer guidelines for how school counselors can deliver empirically supported strategies to address this problem as part of their comprehensive guidance programs.
