Critiquing Policy Decisions: Critique each of the following
social policies according to the following questions: What social work values
and ethical principles should the policy makers consider? What are the
strengths and limitations of these policies in relation to social work values
and ethical principles? How could the policy decisions be improved to provide a
better fi t with social work values and ethical principles?

a. Congress decides to move one billion dollars from social
security to fi ght terrorism. b. A city has an extra $100,000 in its budget to
prevent youth-gang violence. The city has 10 agencies that provide youthgang
prevention services. Wanting to be fair to each agency, city councillors decide
to allocate $10,000 to each of 10 social agencies. Unfortunately, $10,000per
agency does not give any agency suffi cient funds to do much good. One agency
could accomplish much more good if it received the entire $100,000. c. A school
faced with budget cuts decides to cut its art classes. The school wants its
students to do well on standardized education tests and the tests do not
include any questions about art. d. A public housing development creates a
policy that prohibits child molesters from living in their development. e.
Government changes social assistance (welfare) policies so that people who are
disabled from engaging in high-risk activities will receive lower benefi ts
than people who are not responsible for their disabilities. The policy defi
nes high-risk activities to include smoking cigarettes, using illicit drugs,
snowboarding, and riding motorcycles. f. An agency that serves people with
eating disorders has a long waiting list. The agency decides to refuse
treatment services to those with limited motivation so it can prioritize people
who are most likely to benefi t from services. g. A food bank decides to shut
down operations. The programs directors believe that its existence enables
poverty, rather than solves it. They believe the food bank makes the community
take comfort in the fact that economically disadvantaged people do not go
hungry. Unfortunately, the community does not take responsibility for job
creation, affordable child care, and other programs that deal with the
underlying causes of poverty. Although shutting down the food bank creates
short-term pain and crisis, it will produce broader social change over the long
term by motivating the community to act.
