School Social Worker vs Counselor
School Social Worker- Main focus is to support children and families with their ability to succeed educationally. This includes allocating resources and advocating for the child and family. The school social worker also provides social and emotional support.
School Counselor- Main focus is to guide children in the appropriate direction when it comes to their education.
Services began independently in New York City, Boston, and Hartford during the 1906-1907 school year.
Settlement workers from the Hartley and Greenwich House felt children from settlements needed additional support
They began sending workers to visit schools in order build relationships between school and home as well as facilitate children's education.
