For almost all purposes you are right, but I have seen MEds (Masters in Education) out there who are LCSWs. They come from a variety of states (Kansas and Florida that I remember), so I don't know if any of those states still license MEds as LCSWs, but at some point in recent memory they have.
Here is a Google search showing practitioners from a bunch of places who are LCSWs with their MEds: http://www.google.com/search?q=Med+L...ient=firefox-a
