The extension of the professional base for public education is an important recent trend. There has developed an increased use of professional personnel for noninstructional services. The range of professions or services involved includes attendance, guidance, health programs, psychology, and social work. This publication deals primarily with school social work. School social work provides to education a supportive casework or personnel adjustment service for pupils and their families on an individual basis, consultative assistance to teachers and school administrators, community referral services, and assistance in the implementation of school policy and programs. The National Committee of State Consultants in School Social Work recommended this publication and, through its reports and individual participation, assisted in developing it. Individual articles include: (1) Introduction (Horace W. Lundberg); (2) Some Current Problems in American Education (Horace W. Lundberg); (3) Pupil Personnel Services (Hyrum Smith); (4) Present Practices in School Social Work (Jerry L. Kelley); (5) State Level Leadership, Administration, and Financial Support (John C. Nebo); (6) Goals, Recruitment, Training, and Staffing (Elsie Nesbit); and (7) A Look Ahead (Horace W. Lundberg). (Contains 65 footnotes and 1 table.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
