Why do schools need school social workers?
Children today are increasingly victims of many social forces that negatively
affect their role as students. The family is in a state of change and until it
becomes stabilized, in whatever form, children's unmet physical and emotional
needs will continue to interfere with their ability to learn and adjust in school.
