Are Schools Really Broken Or Are We Ignoring the Built-In Inequalities?
High school counselors are charged with helping students work through
academic or emotional problems. They might be the first line of defense
if a student is struggling with depression, anxiety, abuse or other
trauma—all factors that might lead to or exacerbate problematic use
of drugs. Counselors are also supposed to guide the college application
process, helping kids figure out how to get in, pay for school—or
whether college is right for them and what kind of continuing education
best fits their needs.
