The Student Adjustment Center: A Study of New Trends in School Social Work as Reflected in the Board of Cooperative Educational Services, Third Supervisory District, Suffolk County: 1957 – 60
The development of public tax-supported education and the passage of compulsory attendance laws, have reflected this belief in our country that education is the right of all people and is an essential component of a democratic society. Education assists materially in the development of responsible personalities - people able to think, act, and live cooperatively and productively for individual and social good. Thus, the school has become a significant and ideologically powerful social institution in America. As the schools assumed this position in American society it naturally assumed responsibilities, one of which is: to meet the educational needs of all children with their many individual differences and the variety of problems which may interfere with learning. Today, educators are recognizing these responsibilities and are seeking means for the child to grow emotionally; to adjust; and to reach his potential in the school setting. Recognition of these needs are seen in New York State in the concept of Pupil Personnel Services. Pupil Personnel Services coordinate the school services so they may be able to fulfill their necessary role in the achievement of basic educational objectives.
