Professional School Counseling, v12 n4 p272-279 Apr 2009
Eight Latino college students were interviewed to determine their perceptions of the role of their high school counselors. The findings revealed the following themes: (a) inadequate advisement, (b) lack of availability, (c) lack of individual counseling, (d) differential treatment, and (e) low expectations or setting limits. Despite insufficient services from school counselors, participants developed a sense of resilience and succeeded in higher education. A discussion is provided and implications for school counselors are presented.
