School counselors overwhelmingly oppose efforts to arm educators as a response to gun violence in schools, according to new NACAC survey data.
Nearly three-quarters of 2,251 counselors surveyed by the association in May and June reported being either “somewhat opposed” or “strongly opposed” to policies that seek to arm teachers and other school staff.
The data — gleaned from NACAC’s annual Counseling Trends Survey — was released Monday.
That’s one message included in the new book, The Self-Driven Child: The Science and Sense of Giving Your Kids More Control Over Their Lives. And increasingly, the trend is impacting the way students embark on the college search and selection process, author Ned Johnson noted during a Wednesday #NACACreads Twitter chat.
“One of the best things to say to kids is that we have confidence in their decisions,” he tweeted. “Learning comes through trial and error.”
On Sept. 12, #NACACreads chatted with Ned Johnson, a NACAC member and one of two authors behind The Self-Driven Child — a new book that takes a look at strategies to help your students develop the inner drive they’ll need to succeed in life after high school.
