In a democratic society there is a great need to evaluate and analyze the trends, policies and practices of curriculum improvement. Such an evaluation would be made for the purpose of assuring the most progressive development of individuals. In view of this fact, it was the purpose of this investigation to compare and contrast the traditional and contemporary approaches in teacher training with particular reference to the role of the teacher in guidance services.

Most specifically, the problem was (1) to examine the teacher's role and his or her relationship to the guidance program in a modem society; (2) to determine the extent for which basic guidance requirements of teacher education includes pertinent courses in guidance; (3) to study the need for adequate preparation in order that teachers may assist pupils competently in adjusting to their emotional climate.

This study is limited to an investigation of guidance services in the secondary school; current trends of the curriculum improvement at the secondary level; teacher preparation in light of its relationship to the guidance program; and the practical need of including a program of guidance as a pertinent facade of teacher training.
