Vocational and Educational Guidance

by Franklin J. Keller - 1965

How will children in elementary and junior high school know what high school they wish to enter, unless well before graduation they have learned much about occupations and about their own interests and desires? And when they gain new experience, develop new ideas, and change their minds, how will they know "what to do" unless a counselor is handy and alert at every point along the line?

Some conduct guidance on an occasional, semi-emergency, disciplinary basis, rather than as a vital school function.
