Thank you to Wendy Hirsh for alerting me to this speech. It is well worth people who are interested in careers and politics watching.
In her final speech as First Lady speaks about the contribution that school counsellors make to young people and to the nation. Her interest in guidance counselling has been bound up with the Reach Higher initiative which has sought to increase the level of college educated young people in America.
What is most impressive about this speech is the way in which it draws together a vision for progressive America with a commitment to education and views guidance counsellors as key enablers of this.
