White House conference for high school counselors kicks off at SDSU
More than 400 representatives from 32 states convened at San Diego State University for a two-day White House conference aimed at helping high school counselors motivate more students to get college degrees. Laura Owen, one of the conference organizers and assistant professor at SDSU, said California's counselor-to-student ratio of 1 to 1,000 has to be lowered. "If we're really going to support students that's a ridiculous task to expect our counselors in California to have a thousand students on their case load," Owen said.
