Critiques of child welfare services in the public sector point to problems both in the training and skill level of workers, and in the organizational structure and rigidity of the agencies. University/agency partnerships have been developed to provide educational curricula to enhance public child welfare workers' skills and to stimulate agency change. This article uses findings from focus group interviews of supervisors and workers to explore the impact of M.S.W. education on changes in personal behavior, structure, and technological organization. Benefits and challenges for both agencies and universities are discussed.
