"Practical. Commonsense. Usable. Accountable. Job-saving. These are some of the words that come to mind to describe the second edition of Donald Rye and Rozanne Sparks's Strengthening K-12 School Counseling Programs: A Support Systems Approach…
School counselors in training and practitioners alike will benefit greatly from the ideas and examples in this edition. And the most important shareholders in the world of K-12 education--students and their parents-- will benefit from the improved counseling and guidance services that will emerge through the implementation of the Rye and Sparks model."
