The National School Counseling Week will be celebrated during the first week of February. It is common to hear discussions on how class size and teacher quality affects the quality of education. Rarely do we hear how school counselors enable students to become better students
and empower them to surpass their fears and enrich them so that they may pick a career that matches their wants and desires. This week we recognize those school counselors who implement comprehensive school counseling programs. It’s appropriate that the White House hosted the Counselor of the Year ceremony and is acknowledging the importance of data based decision making and its effect on students attending college.
