Allen-Meares, Paula; Montgomery, Katherine L.
Children & Schools, v36 n2 p105-112 Apr 2014
In the 21st century, substantial advancements have been made across the globe that positively affect the ability for school-based social workers in the fields of practice, policy, and research to meet the needs of the world's youths. Nonetheless, children continue to suffer from poverty-stricken environments, absence of basic needs, poor or no health care, and insufficient access to quality education. The purpose of this article was to review recent trends in children's rights to education, psychological and behavioral health, and physiological health and to provide social workers with a contextual landscape for progress. Specific suggestions about how school-based social workers can make improvements across the globe are offered.
