Training for High School Counselors

Michigan high school counselors could use better training in preparing students for their postsecondary planning. That, according to the head of the Michigan College Access Network. Executive Director Brandy Johnson, says too many high school counselors have never received formal training in college advising and postsecondary planning. She also says until recently, graduate programs that were producing counselors, were not offering the proper courses.

Johnson does say improvements are on the way. Two examples are Western Michigan University and Wayne State University, which will begin requiring such classes in the coming year.
