For decades, educators and policy makers have been investigating the overrepresentation of African American students in special education. Using an online survey, the relationship between school counselors' multicultural competence and their likelihood of recommending students for remedial and advanced interventions based on students' culturally-influenced behaviors was examined. Findings indicate that counselor bias may affect racial/ethnic disproportionality in special education. Recommendations and strategies for school counselor training will be discussed.
