Arkansas School Counselors
Whether living in Little Rock, Fayetteville, Jonesboro or anywhere else in Arkansas, you will find many of the best and brightest educators migrating over to the Arkansas school counseling profession.
The reasons are many for wanting to become a school counselor. The better pay (school counselors typically receive $5,000 to $10,000 more a year than teachers), the ability to apply learning theories more readily, the ability to interact with those students who desperately need assistance, and the newly found and accepted importance of the job are turning Arkansas' educators' heads.

In an October 26th, 2007 press release from Governor Mike Beebe, he stated the following:
"Excellence in all forms of education remains my top priority. It is my unwavering commitment to equip our future generations with the skills and tools they need to thrive in an increasingly complex and competitive world."
Governor Beebe is simply reflecting the desires of all Arkansas residents. As a result, approaches to public education will continue to be more thought out and connections will need to be made between curriculum and learning at all levels. Curriculum and educational directions will rely more heavily on those with expertise in the psychology of learning and breaking down of learning barriers, Arkansas school counselors.
