Why the school counselor might not know your kid's name
From April 9:
It's a middle and high school crisis that few teachers notice and fewer school administrators, or parents, are discussing. To understand the effects of a nationwide shortage of school counselors, just ask one about her day. The counselor we asked — who requested anonymity — works in a 1,600-student suburban Washington, D.C., high school. Through her students, she sees nearly every issue the public education system faces: standardized test pressure, the needs of poor and immigrant students, teens wrestling with their sexuality. That's in addition to making sure they're academically on track.
