Money, Politics and Education: The Case of Social Work
Axinn, June; Levin, Herman
History of Education Quarterly, 18, 2, 143-58, Sum 78
Traces the effect of society's values, the country's socio-political structure, and economic and technological conditions on social work education. Social work education began in the late 19th century with the idea of using scientific methods to alleviate poverty. The 1920's and 50's were conservative periods, while the 30's and 60's were periods of reform. The 70's are developing as a period of case management, systems analysis, and management by objectives.
