Reform the welfare system

Published 28 Feb 2017

Reform the welfare system: According to the researches of the Wisconsin university, the main problems of the society is due to a man’s individual responsibility, unemployment of most people, family problems, and incapability of having the quality of life (“Child and Family Well-Being”).

Economical dilemma
The economical issue of alleviating poverty was addressed by the public policy of the United States during the year of 1930. The first priority is the nuclear unit of a community which is the family, mostly those married couples that have a lot of children to support but are not able to provide for their family (Jackson).

Reform Proposal:
One-child policy
This states that a couple should not have more than one child. It is already one of the policies in china but the interval of it lasts for five years. In this reform, we would lessen the span of time to three years of intervals. In that way the couple will learn more about family planning. In this situation, the couple or parent will be able to provide the most need of the child. They would have enough for food, shelter and clothing unlike when they are providing for a big family. The couple will not have any difficulty in raring an only child (Burns).

The image below is an example in china’s one child policy. This policy helped prevent the rapid growth of population in china. It then helped prevent the problem of malnutrition in children (Burns).

Being dependent of a single parent with the help of the government is also a one big welfare problem. There are lots of single female parents who are expecting the only help they could get that the AFDC which stands for Aid to Families with Dependent Children could offer them (“Welfare Reform in Pennsylvania “).

Reform Proposal:
Job employment for single parent

With this reform, the government will be able to help single parent earn money for their child. The reform will also prevent the people from being dependent from the help that they could get from the other people. The effect of this in the children is that their future will be ensured that they would be able to have a good education when they grew up because the parent can already provide them one (Pasawarat).

Lack of good education
Education is one of the people’s basic needs; it will prevent us from being naïve. It’s why every people should be given the equal right for a good education. Public schools are always competing with the standard of private schools; they are always being questioned about the quality of learning. The basic problem is that the public schools are not fully equipped and does not have enough books to be used by the students for researches (“Education and Child Welfare Program”).

Reform Proposal:
Totally-free college education with monthly allowance
This should be given for those children who are interested to study college but are not able to afford tuition and other school fees.
With this reform, a lot of unfortunate people would be given a chance to change their way of living.

Giving a totally free education will help lessen the burdens of those students who wanted to study that though there are free scholarships, they still could not afford to go to school because they still could not provide money for their other expenses in school.
It will also lead children out from being no-knowledge and naivety.
This will bring a future that is full of hope for all of the people equally.
