I am a social work student at Texas A&M here in Kingsville. Our policy professor assigned us an assignment where we must write to our local editors, congressman and senator about a specific social work issue and a bill in congress that may involve it. I chose to write about veterans’ involvement in STEM education, computer science and scientific research. This may involve and can be a social work issue in that it deals with veterans who may need the services of social workers. Social workers can definitely help veterans by promoting this H.R. 425 bill in that it will promote and empower veterans.
So, the problem is we need to help empower and just help them in general. A step in the right direction in the solution may be passing this bill.
