Summary
Introduction
Ideally, the issue surrounding children maltreatment in schools has been a long lasting
challenge in the societal settings for the last couple of decades now. However, no work exists
that tend to examine the way that the maltreated children are provided with services by the
overall school social workers. The article “Maltreated children in schools: The interface of
school social work and children welfare” by Jonson-Reid, Melissa, et al. documents the overall
characteristics as well as the prevalence of children who are diagnosed with indications of the
present or rather the past maltreatment on the environment of school social work caseloads
(Melissa, et al., 2007). The article as well explores the overall that exist with child welfare
services while examining the way case traits fluctuate based on their level of involvement with
child welfare.
According to the authors, cases of maltreatment are often presented in a report where the
child welfare agency is tasked at investigating, assessing, or even closing the case immediately.
Research shows that most maltreated children tend to indicate a rather low academic
involvement and thus have a deficit in social skills compared to those children who are a social-
economical advantage (Melissa, et al., 2007). In this light, the article explains that those children
who are subjected to foster care are mostly at a risk for poor academic outcomes. According to
the authors, there are various national surveys regarding school social work tasks that have
already identified maltreated children as a collective target populace among the overall social
workers in different schools. On the other hand, the article indicates that state children welfare

agencies have been struggling in addressing mental health, health requirements of children that
receive welfare services, and the educational services they receive.
Discussion
The article specifically focuses on the issue surrounding the overall characteristics as well
as the prevalence of children who are diagnosed with indications of the present or rather the past
maltreatment on the environment of school social work caseloads (Admon Livny & Katz, 2018).
The article as well explored the overall that exist with child welfare services while examining the
way case traits fluctuate based on their level of involvement with child welfare (Melissa, et al.,
2007). The entire study in the current article was developed in a collaborative manner
particularly by the university researcher as well as the school social workers who came from
three different districts. The data that were presented in the article included the entire population
of students that served between the year 2000 and 2001 of their school year in two different
district schools with a comparable population as well as school social work practices (Melissa, et
al., 2007). The overall caseload per school ranged between 200 to about 300 students every year.
The student’s demographics were captured through collaboratively developed
management information system. The data that were obtained in the research was transferred to
the researchers by the use of ID numbers with an aim of protecting the confidentiality of the
entire students who participated in the research. The demographics of children included grade
level particularly at the time of referral, gender, race, the status of the resident, as well as the
eligibility for the special education. Consequently, the researchers divided the race into either
“white” or “nonwhite” (Melissa, et al., 2007). The reasons for referrals included suspected child
abuse as well as neglect, disruptive behaviors, aggression, academic problems, family issues
