Welfare Reform: What Should We Do for Our Nation's Poor? Public Talk Series.
McCoy, Martha
This program guide on welfare reform raises basic questions about different beliefs that influence public policy about welfare and what the welfare system ought to achieve. Four policy approaches are offered as a framework for discussion: (1) cut welfare for the able; (2) use welfare as a tool to require recipients to become more responsible; (3) increase welfare benefits and expand services to give the system a chance to work; and (4) replace the current welfare program with a universal social welfare system. In addition to an introductory letter addressed to the study circle organizer, this guide contains the following information; (1) introduction; (2) background--poverty and the welfare system; (3) four approaches to welfare reform; (4) suggestions for leading this discussion; (5) leading a study group; (6) suggestions for participants; (7) follow-up form; and (8) Public Talk Series Programs and other resources available from the Study Circles Resource Center.
