The 1960’s, most professional school counselors

Since the 1960’s, most professional school counselors have been taught the three “Cs” as a way of defining their role in the schools. Discuss the limitations of this old model and explain why professional school counselors need to be responsive to changing educational and societal needs.

Give examples of how systemic assessment and use of data can demonstrate how professional school counselors can make a difference in the academic success of all students. Pay particular attention to highlighting marginalized populations and narrowing the gap between poor or minority students and more advantaged peers. Do we need assessment tools at all (In what sense do we need objective measures to avoid bias, not to cloud our thinking/assumptions)?
