I was not aware of the social and emotional support that a guidance counselor is expected to provide to the student and her/his family. I have felt our counselors have a lot of work to do, with very little support, the same as with everyone in the school system. However, after reading the articles, I looked at our student enrollment numbers and divided them against the number of counselors, and realized they have to work with almost 400 students each. THEY NEED A RAISE!!! Now, that I understand more about their job, I understand why my student's have so many schedule changes. Yes it is true; they help students plot their high school path for graduation while looking for post secondary education and work opportunities. It is also true that counselors help the student graduate and become productive citizens in the community is correct, however, that does not begin to explain the complexity of counseling.
