It appeared to the author from reviewing the proposed Washington State Standards that perhaps the "quality" and "guidance functions" recommended by the Panel and adopted by the Vocational Education Act, to be available to students, were not being met by the counselors qualifying under the variety of requirements available to Washington State counselors. More specifically, it appeared that counselors being certified under a particular set of requirements would tend to perform a particular stage of counseling more successfully due to the experiences required for certification. The problem as viewed by the author is that the variety of criteria available for certification overshadows the efficacy of a single certificate. It appeared that fulfillment of one set of requirements does not imply success in all stages of counseling.
