Proposal to CSWE on Barriers Public Sector Social Workers Face in Pursuing a Social Work Degree ***Update***

This document was submitted to the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Social Work and NASW-NC for Review prior to submitting to the Council for Social Work Education (CSWE).  I would love to hear your thoughts.  My hopes are to gain enough support, comments, testimonials prior to submission to Council for Social Work Education. So, they can see the need for assessment and change.

The proposal was sent to the Council for Social Work Education and to the Congressional Social Work Caucus.  Here is the email response sent to me by CSWE President Darla Coffey. NASW-NC and the National Association of Social Workers in Washington D.C has also responded and offered support. NASW National followed up with CSWE on November 30, 2012. However, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill did not respond to my request for support.

In this post, you will have the opportunity to not only learn about this site, but to also hear about Deona’s unique journey to becoming a social worker. She is a third-generation teen parent who has struggled to work and study her way out of poverty. I think you will find her determination, hard work and generosity inspiring. Read More
