Linda Sánchez Introduces Resolution Recognizing School Counselors
Washington, DC- This week, Congresswoman Linda Sánchez introduced a resolution to honor the hard work of school counselors across the country by making February 2-6, 2015 "National School Counselors Week."
"School counselors play an important role in the lives of our children, but too often their work goes unnoticed," said Rep. Linda Sánchez. "Every day, they go to work to help motivate, inspire and encourage our children to achieve their fullest potential. 'National School Counselors Week' recognizes their dedication and all the hard work they put into shaping our students' education."
This is the eighth time Congresswoman Sánchez introduces legislation to honor school counselors. She has also introduced legislation in the past that would provide funding for additional counselors in high school with high drop-out rates. The current counselor-to-student ratio in America's schools is 471 to one, which is double the 250 to one ration recommended by the American School Counselors Association and the National Association for College Admissions.
H. Res 74 currently has 13 co-sponsors. For a copy of the resolution, click here: https://1.usa.gov/16zijnu
