Source 16 supports the statement by saying ‘In 1870, the Government made elementary education up to the age of 13 compulsory for all children.’ This shows that by opening education to all children aged 13 and below, they had approached the problem of uneducated children especially boys from falling into lower classes. Source 17 also agrees, ‘Before 1870, education was not compulsory and it was not free.’ The government had then opened a branch for the lower classes to become educated and somehow improve their quality of life. By opening up school board and creating new schools, it meant that fees were eventually to be taken off, when after the 1902 education act, schools that were receiving state funding had to offer 25% of all places without fees. Gladstone the prime minister at the time believed in equality of opportunity, so over the coming years, showed open support about children receiving open education for all ages. He openly says about passing the political power to an uneducated nation and improving people’s quality of life, therefore showing support.

(McGregor, 1997). The “Aboriginal Protection and Restriction of the Sale of Opium Act 1897” (Qld) protectionist policy proposed by Archibald Meson and was introduced with added restriction on the sale of opium. The 1897 Act stated that, these act allowed government officials under the control of the Chief Protector and, after 1939, Director of Native Affairs to ‘remove’ Indigenous people to and between reserves and to separate children from their families. The 1897 Act also provided that ‘orphaned and ‘deserted’, ‘half caste’ children could be removed to an orphanage. The 1897 Act created a system of almost complete control over every aspect of the lives of Indigenous people in ways that were unthinkable for almost all non-Indigenous adults.
This complicates the process and restricts peoples freedoms and rights of where they belong and what services they are eligible for. The article Growing Up in the Shadows :The Developmental Implications of Unauthorized Status by the Harvard Educational Review. explains how million of young people in the United States lives in limbo status, without formal documentation. Many of these people are brought here as children and spent most of their formative years in the United States in neighborhoods, attending schools, and internalizing a sense of themselves as young Americans. Some were brought by their parents as babies across the Southern border.
“Sorry…mate?” As a bystander, it is outrageous to see how much effort the Australian government is putting into Aboriginal affairs even after Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s public apology to the Stolen Generations in 2008. It was necessary for the Australian government to acknowledge their past wrong-doings and apologise for the generation of stolen children whose families had been forcefully torn apart. Thinking back, this bleak moment in the Australian history was the result of an official government policy from 1909 to 1969 which allowed authorities such as the Aborigines Protection Board (APB) to remove children of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander backgrounds from their birth families. They were to be fostered or adopted into another
Many tried to run away but with limited success. Many never saw their parents again or were told they were orphans. Only few records of stolen children were kept, some were deliberately destroyed or just lost. Some administrations tried to advertise their "successful assimilation" of Aboriginal people by deliberately understating Indigenous numbers, thus distorting data. Hence numbers can only be roughly estimated.
This is seen in Catcher in the Rye many times. “Between the emotional incapability of Holden’s mother, the neglectful consumerism of his father, and the couple’s reliance on the third party institutions such as boarding schools and psychiatrists to raise their child, the Caulfields embody the failing of parenting at large during the postwar period,” (Kirkwood, 23). The first sign of delinquency was when he tells the reader that he has been kicked out of school, for the third time. This clearly shows how Holden could care less about his education and lacks motivation to aspire to
Millions of people were thrown out of their jobs, and were left with no other options. Schools began to close; families were left homeless, wandering the streets. The elderly suffered because they had no money to live on. While Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) rushed to create more jobs, he also began to back an idea that would give aid to poor children and other dependent people (2). In FDR’s State of the Union address, he included that he planned on creating an old-age insurance program, federal unemployment and benefits for dependent people and poor single mothers with
These policies included protectionism, assimilation, integration and finally self-determination. The first government policy was protectionism which was during the 19th and 20th centuries. Protectionism was the idea that Aboriginal Australians needed to be separated from white Australians and ‘protected’ for their own good as they were a dying race. Under this policy Aboriginal people were removed from their traditional land and were placed on government-run reserves or church-run missions where they were to live. Some half-caste children were removed from their tribe and were placed in white families.
In the beginning of the 1900s, social agencies started to supervise foster parents. This was the beginning where children’s needs as individuals were considered when placements were made. Foster care is a system of institutions, group homes, and private homes for abandoned, maltreated, and orphaned children. Placement in foster care is a solution to the care problems of children whose parents are unwilling, unable, or judged by the legal system as unfit to care for them. Foster care is unfavorable to American society, because “according to national statistic 40 to 50 percent of those children will never complete high school.
