Question and answer
describe a social policy that may affect your future position as a human service worker?
There are a number of social policies that may affect a person's future as a human services worker, and these depend on the departments that a person is working in, [ and what their job role is. Healthcare policies Those working in the area of healthcare may be affected if a social policy was introduced to centralize certain services. If this was to happen, then there would inevitably be
cutbacks in terms of jobs and money spent on certain areas of healthcare. Welfare policies Changes to the welfare system could affect a worker in this area in two ways. If benefits were cut, it could have a detrimental effect on the lives of many, and if someone was working on a one to one basis with people who were on benefits this could affect the relationship that the two parties have. Another effect of a change to welfare policies would be that there would be less people needed to work in the sector, and job losses may be required. Pension policies As with the healthcare and welfare policy examples, changes to pension policy could have a bearing on the future employment of somebody working in this sector. Pensions and the timing of their payout is constantly under review, and this could have a detrimental effect on many people in this sector. Education policies Merging schools to save money is a popular policy at the moment in some parts of the world, including the United Kingdom. People working in education will be threatened by this, as there will inevitably be less jobs for teachers and support staff. This will affect morale, and will have a knock-on effect to the pupils of the schools in question. ]

What are your perspectives on prayer in schools?
Weegy: Prayer in schools is a touchy subject. It puts parents, teachers and administrators at odds, and even simple discussions spiral into heated sidebars about crime rates, moral compasses and the Constitution. [ But while parents and educators get wrapped up in semantics and principle, kids still have to go to school. When the Gallup Poll last surveyed Americans in 2005, they found that 76 percent of us favor "a constitutional amendment to allow voluntary prayer in public schools." It's no surprise then that many schools continue to sponsor prayer on school grounds, despite the fact that it's unconstitutional. No matter which side of the debate you're on, you may find your kid on the other side of it—at odds with the school's policy regarding prayer. As the grownups hash out their differences, both religious and secular kids can find benefits no matter which type of school they attend. Pros for Religious Students at Schools without Prayer Take the opportunity to teach initiative. It's your child's school, so help her get invested. Prayer hasn't been banned from school; teachers just can't initiate it. She can start a school club to connect her, and other like-minded peers, to religion. They can pray, meet and discuss their spirituality anywhere before, during and after school, so long as it doesn't infringe on other kids' rights. Teach proactivity now and it will be a lifelong skill. Shift the focus to family. Larry Forthun, professor of Human Development at the University of Florida advises that "a child's spiritual foundation is in the home... parents can encourage spiritual growth by actively engaging children in religious and spiritual activities including prayer." No prayer at school? Schedule weekly time as a family to meditate, discuss faith, pray or read the Torah together. Or, enroll an antisocial teen in a youth program at your spiritual institution to build her faith with her peers—without mom and dad cramping her style. Reach across the ... (More)

consider how you could influence this policy to meet your clients needs. if you work for a government organization, you may not be able to lobby, but what other way could you advocate for your client population?
Weegy: Laws can be abolished or changed with time to reflect changes in policy. If our society felt that providing for the hungry was no longer a Federal responsibility, the laws governing this matter could be abolished. [ States and cities could take over this responsibility, but probably would not be in the position to do so effectively, which would leave the responsiblity where it initially rested. The above is just an example of one policy that may be of importance. Another example would be whether or not to make the use and possesion of addictive drugs legal. In the U.S. we have many harsh laws which govern the policy that there use should be restricted. What would happen if these laws were abolished? Education is another policy issue. Education is highly valued but very expensive to provide. What would happen if State laws requiring an education be provided to children were abolished? ] (More)

Weegy: In the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks, American Muslims have had a complicated relationship with their own country. According to a Pew Research Center study, more than half - 55 percent - say it's been more difficult being Muslim in the U.S. [ since 9/11, yet I think perceptions of American Muslims and Muslims in general have changed since 9/11.

Weegy: People who are not biased against Muslims, have not changed their opinion of American Muslims, but people who are uniformed, do blame the entire Muslim world for the September 11 attacks. [ [ We must remember that the vast majority of Muslims in America are against terrorism. ] (More)
