Guidance is one of the major functions of the Junior High School. Recognition of individual differences in ability, aptitudes and interests, and varied curriculum, to meet these differences require that the Junior High School give the students opportunities for making choices. Choice, then, on the part of students implies a type of guidance so that they may select the types of subjects that will have the greatest values for them.
The curriculum should be worked out to give wide and varied contacts with social and economic activities of the community. The problem of this thesis, then, centers around the following questions: 1. What are the factors influencing guidance? 2. How can guidance be made more effective? 3. How may the individual be aided to properly use and evaluate guidance information?
The purpose of this thesis is: 1. To show the present status of guidance in the Negro Junior High School grade levels of Texas, and what have been the factors limiting proper guidance. 2. To construct a tentative program of guidance.
