This chapter sets the stage for the remainder of the text by demonstrating that a chasm exists between the practice choices of school social workers and the research on school-based prevention and intervention, as well as contemporary education models developed to guide the organization and delivery of school social work and other support services (e.g. school psychology, behavior consultation, and school counseling). This gap is referred to as the knowledge—practice gap. The history of school social work, contemporary education models, and the knowledge—practice gap are discussed.

Keywords:   social work practice, social workers, knowledge-practice gap, school social work, education models
