This study examines the influence of social work education on the sex distribution in social work practice. It was found that in one school where there was no formal tracking of students into casework, groupwork, and community organization, students did not segregate themselves according to sex into different method specialties; also, female and male attitudes toward practice did not conform to sex-role stereotypes. The results suggest that policy and curriculum changes in social work education can alter the sex-role stereotypes that exist in the traditional organization of social work methods.
