Social Work: The last calling
My thoughts on this morning Talkback.
Social work is the last frontier to the called. Teaching, nursing, doctoring and politics have all become professional.
We don't have enough social workers. That's what happened if it remains a calling. Once you pay up and professionalized the service it cease being a calling. Sure, some are still heeding the call but they will be lost among many professionals.
