When it comes to college and career support, the counselor shortage is only part of the problem
“What’s the FAFSA deadline?!”
“I want to become a welder!”
These questions and exclamations are just a tiny slice of the experience of an educator whose responsibility — often one of many — is to shepherd students to success after high school graduation. That educator may be the school counselor, adviser, English teacher or coach, among others. In my case, I served as the adviser at a national charter school network.
