In Fulfilling the Promise, Mandy Savitz-Romer shows what is possible when schools and districts draw upon the talents of their counselors and put them at the center of students’ school experience.


Mandy Savitz-Romer tells an urgently needed story about the importance of school counselors for the success of our children. Many students in our nation’s public schools don’t have meaningful access to the life-changing supports that these invaluable professionals provide. As a nation, we have to acknowledge the message these glaring inequities send to our students about what we expect from them and for them. Fulfilling the Promise is a critical addition to the national conversation on this issue. — John B. King Jr., US Secretary of Education under President Obama, president and CEO of The Education Trust

Savitz-Romer masterfully illuminates the compelling ‘story’ of the school counseling profession; while at the same time, she highlights the often-forgotten underutilization of counselors in today’s schools. Fulfilling the Promise is particularly useful to school leaders who seek a systemic approach for ensuring student success. — Cheryl Holcomb-McCoy, dean, School of Education, American University
