AISENSON, Diana et al. The Vocational Guidance in argentinian schools: The need of a public policy and new guidance practices. Anu. investig. [online]. 2009, vol.16, pp. 137-146. ISSN 1851-1686.
In this paper, the final results of the evaluation of guidance services in high schools are presented for the first time, the data given obtained in research on vocational guidance in Argentina (1999-2003), involving the participation of teams from nine national universities. Results obtained, which were processed during 2008, show that guidance services in schools are precarious and have many problems. These include the lacks of macro institutional policies in the field; counselors with adequate expertise; material and technical resources, and inadequate networking among relevant organizations. These data are the basic component of the research project entitled "Education for Guidance and the Projects and Personal Identity Constructions of young people" (P054, UBACyT 2008-2010), whose objective is to evaluate the guidance strategies and methods that are used in two services of the University of Buenos Aires.
