Description:

This qualitative case study explores the opinions of teachers at the K-12 level with respect to the role of school guidance counselors before and after implementation of the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) model K-12. The researcher predicts that teachers will realize a difference in the attitudes of school guidance counselors and some positive change in student outcomes resulting from the implementation of the ASCA program. The reasons for this are varied. The writer points out that many researchers of note claim that school guidance counselors have made little progress in implementing their initiatives especially given the fact that new educational reforms repeatedly put their needs on the back burner.
