Social Work Education: Status Quo or Change?
Sowers, Karen M.; Dulmus, Catherine N.
Research on Social Work Practice, v19 n1 p114-115 2009
The authors believe that Stoesz and Karger did not go far enough in their critique. The struggling state of the profession and of social work education is symptomatic of a much larger and fundamental systemic problem that cannot be addressed solely by fixing the Council on Social Work Education or increasing requirements for Social Science Citation Index publications. Social work must build a broad-based capacity for rigorous scientific inquiry and train the next generation of faculty researchers and practitioners to carry on this essential work.
