ERIC First Analysis: 1973-74 National High School Debate Resolutions.
Reynolds, William M.; Sexton, John E.
Background information on the underlying issues of the 1973-74 National High School Debate Resolutions, which were designed to explore the necessity for and the feasibility of developing new federal programs to curb poverty, is contained in this handbook. Part 1 examines the problem of poverty in the United States--definitions, dimensions, causes, and effects. Part 2 describes current local, state, and federal antipoverty programs. Part 3 considers some of the pros and cons of attempting to control poverty through such approaches as a guaranteed minimum income, public work for those living in poverty, and comprehensive welfare. An annotated bibliography, including a number of documents available through the ERIC system, concludes the book. (See CS 500 194 for related document containing primary resources for the topic.)
