If there are living-wages for poor workers, many individuals with multiple jobs would be able to quit their second or third jobs. This would permit them more time to spend with their families. If parents are able to spend more time with their families, families within poor neighborhoods would have a stronger sense of family unity. Hurd claims that other benefits may come from this as well. “Communities benefit from less crime, more homeownership and increased time for parents to spend with their kids” (Hurd, 785).
This led to parents having more power as consumers. Miriam Davies describes this parental choice agenda as ‘parentocracy’ because power has been moved away from the producers (teachers/school) to the consumers (parents). She claimed that this encourages diversity among schools, gives parents more choice and drives up standards. Parents were now able to influence the education of their children. Not only were league tables published, but formula funding was introduced.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Work demands and family responsibility have increasingly come in conflict as mothers have become a large part of the workforce, and fathers have begun to share in the caregiving responsibilities. Working parents at B. Insurance Agency need to care for their children. What benefits can be obtained from the employer and employees by encouraging B Insurance Agency to provide a daycare center during working hours? Child care programs can benefit employers by decreasing absenteeism, providing higher productivity, and having a lower turnover rate.
Using material from Item 2B and elsewhere, assess the view that gender roles and relationships have become more equal in modern family life. (24 marks) Firstly, the item suggests that ‘a number of changes have taken place in gender roles and relationships within families.’ There are a number of sociological perspectives which agree with this statement and also various approaches that criticise the nature of these changes. They argue whether they have created greater equality within modern family life or whether this statement is simply exaggerated. This essay will assess these views and will conclude whether gender roles and relationships have in reality, become more equal in modern family life. Initially, within the modernity period, functionalists like Parsons (1955), saw a biological division of labour which he claimed were beneficial to the family and thus wider society.

• What types of legislation have been introduced to address issues faced by people with disabilities? The types of legislation that has been introduced to address issues faced by people with disabilities are the American Disability Act which improved the lively hood of many people. Especially compared to what the past was for disabled people. The ADA was a big step in the right direction but, more needs to be done. More educational grants so the job market opens up more and that would lead to better pay wages and a way to supplement their income so their lives are improved as
The introduction of contraception has led to couples having smaller families, therefore meaning that children now tend to receive more attention from their parents. Similarly, parents are also able to care for their children better due to the introduction of the welfare state and child benefits. Climbie’s case and ‘Every Child Matters’ has led to the improvement of social services and child protection, meaning childhood is much safer now than it was 50 years ago. Children are also in better health due to the NHS, meaning more children survive childhood now than ever before. All children can now receive state education up until the age of 18, meaning they are better educated and can achieve much higher in adulthood, whilst experiencing a longer period of youth.
It also can make it easier than in the past for a student who switches schools, because now schools broadly have to follow a similar curriculum. The national curriculum was introduced to enable assessment, which also helped to compile league tables. League tables (1988 education act) are another change that has helped the education system. League tables are used to compare the academic achievements of different institutions and parents can use them to decide which school they want their child(ren) to go to. Using league tables is a good thing as if you want your child to go to a good school, you can chose the one most suitable with good education and exam results.
Job satisfaction has also been found to be positively related to life, while family satisfaction and life satisfaction have also been found to be considerably related. The relationship between job and family satisfaction was also examined by Crouter and Perry-Jenkins (1986), who found that when parents had high job satisfaction they also showed high family satisfaction. Children of these parents were also found to role better, in general, and then compared to children of parents not satisfied with their
