Over 60 percent of young adults give high school guidance counselors a "fair" or "poor" rating in helping students think through career options, according to a report titled, "Can I Get a Little
Advice Here?" published by Public Agenda on behalf of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The results of the study were not intended to cast high school guidance counselors in a bad light. Counselors are stretched thin with a high student-counselor ratio and are tasked with clerical responsibilities which detract from their primary job.
IDPlan is providing parents a highly personalized solution which guides their student through the process of proven assessments, professional advising, and sound decision-making. The WorkStyle ID card serves as a readily-accessible reminder to the student that time and resources have been invested to help steer him or her on a personal pathway to success.
