By L.B. Bernstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), November 1915

The author surveys the current state of social work education and training for social workers, sectarian, Jewish, or non-sectarian, in the United States and around the world. He then describes the plans for the creation of the School for Jewish Communal Work and the guidelines it used to ensure a professional character, including certain admissions requirements, the basic course of study, and the composition of the faculty. Finally he makes a set of recommendations for professional training for Jewish social work, emphasizing the importance of field work, personal mentorship, and a broad curriculum including administration and management, public health, and methods of study.
