The Influence of Perceived Poverty and Academic Achievement on School Counselor Conceptualization
Hutchison, Brian
Equity & Excellence in Education, v44 n2 p203-220 2011
This analog study presented 173 practicing school counselors with one of four case scenarios depicting a student new to their school. Each scenario manipulated one of two levels of the independent variables, which were perceived poverty and academic achievement. Main effects indicate that participants rated students as more attractive counseling participants when they are perceived as poor and/or strong academic performers. Implications for school counselors and further research are discussed. (Contains 1 note and 3 tables.)
