Career Website for Kids
A fantastic site from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  Click on your favorite academic subject (math, social studies, etc.), and it’ll show you information about jobs, salaries, educational requirements, and lots of additional information!  Fourth grade students also work with this site during the Career part of Classroom Guidance.

CareerShip

Another great career site. Students are able to select an interest area and then have access to detailed descriptions of all of the occupations matching that interest area.

Education Trust Website
This is a great site if you want information about “No Child Left Behind,” as well as transformations in school counseling programs nationwide.

No Child Left Behind
This is the official government website for “No Child Left Behind.”
