In the school of today the administrator and the teachers are not able to offer students and parents all the assistance they need; as a consequence, the school must provide guidance survives. Because there is a national urgency to identify and develop the talents of these students, well-organized guidance services are needed.

Today, technology and automation have lifted guidance out of the merely "desirable" category, and made it in an urgent, basic need for social and economic survival. This is a new and exciting age with special opportunities for the educated, and corresponding risks for those whose education is inadequate. Without guidance, these risks could become more serious in the years to come, at a cost to the individual and to our society we cannot estimate.
