Meeting the Challenges Together: School Counselors Collaborating with Students and Families with Low Income
Grothaus, Tim; Cole, Rebekah
Journal of School Counseling, v8 n27 2010
Given the disproportionally dire educational outcome data for students from families with low income, school counselors are challenged to advocate, educate, and collaborate with stakeholders to address the pernicious and prevalent achievement and access gaps. After an examination of the inequitable current conditions for these students and families, school counselor facilitation of school-family partnerships is explored. In addition, school counselor roles in challenging biases, educating stakeholders, and engaging in advocacy for these students and families are discussed.
