This week we are looking at a variety of social policy issues, but will specifically address poverty in our discussion.
(1) What factors contribute to poverty in the United States?
(2) Are existing welfare policies effective in combating poverty? Why or why not?
(3) What policy reforms would you recommend?
As you present your argument, please address issues of prevention, education and access to social services as it relates to welfare policies. You should also incorporate information about welfare reform under the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations.
