The article presents a reprint of the article "Encouraging trends in homeroom guidance," by Harry C. McKown, which appeared in the May 1940 issue of the "High School Journal." It discusses the trend toward a capitalization of the homeroom opportunities for guidance in the United States. Administrators are recognizing that every teacher does not represent the combination of ideals, interests, background, ability and personality essential to competent homeroom sponsorship. Where formerly guidance was considered the responsibility of one or two counselors or directors, much of the work is now done in and through the homeroom.
