High-school counselors: Training won’t create time for advising

Guest columnist Jenée Myers Twitchell quite correctly paints a picture of high school counselors staggered by too many responsibilities on their plates[“Give high-school counselors a chance to collaborate,” Education Lab, April 17].

As a former high-school counselor, I think she is right on this point. Time — or the lack thereof — is the culprit. Can counselors benefit from targeted training and collaboration in these areas? Absolutely.

But, to suggest that counselors know little about college counseling is simply not true. All the training in the world would not free up the time it takes to adequately advise those students who have few options apart from their high school counselor.
