Income Maintenance Studies: A Missing Component
Journal of Education for Social Work
This article reviews the findings of a national survey intended to determine the extent to which income maintenance studies are available in graduate or undergraduate social work programs. Their general unavailability is linked to a disregard for the poor on the part of organized social work. Latent interest for such a course of studies was uncovered, however. The author advocates the legitimization of income maintenance as a field of study for social workers and presents a tentative educational model for the curriculum.
