"Nearly 70 percent of high school counselors say they are tasked with administrative and clerical duties, according to a report released Wednesday by the College Board."


Counselors can't effect change from behind their desks, says Peggy Hines, director of the Education Trust's National Center for Transforming School Counseling.


"They really need to be out of their office … teaming and collaborating to help the school better meet student needs," Hines says. "That means that school counselors are leaders and advocates, who use data to help the school figure out where, really and truly, they need to focus their school reform efforts and school improvement projects."

Teaching Critical Thinking For Academic Success, Career Readiness & Personal Development

Teaching Critical Thinking For Academic Success, Career Readiness & Personal Development | 649-Career Development | Scoop.it

Business and university studies consistently cite the absence of critical thinking in graduates' workplace readiness and lifelong learning skill set. We know critical thinking is important, but perhaps we have become so immersed in the why of critical thinking that we have forgotten about how to do critical thinking. This session examines how to use video, music, text, and exciting interactive activities to foster your students' critical thinking skills across the curriculum for academic and personal success. Wednesday, October 3 ~ 3:00-4:30pm EDT

I wonder how students who graduated from schools with comprehensive school counseling programs fair in comparison.  Not sure I am ready to pay the $300 plus fee, but this ad provided interesting thought.
