Secondary School Counselors Report a Striking Gap between Ideals and School Realities

In 2011, the College Board National Office for School Counselor Advocacy (NOSCA) conducted a national survey with a representative sample of 1,327 middle school counselors and 3,981 high school counselors to learn how they view their missions and roles and how they spend their days. The survey findings were recently discussed at the NOSCA fifth annual conference, held April 13-14 in Washington, DC.
