“If we don’t challenge oppression, no-one else will” Why is an understanding of power important in social work and how do you think a social worker might carry out their role in an anti-discriminatory and anti-oppressive manner, taking account of social work ethics and values? It is apparent that power is ‘an ever-present phenomenon in social life’ (Thompson, 2007, p55), and some individuals will have more authority or influence on others, for instance, social workers amongst their service users. It is instantly recognised that power is a dominant feature of the rising struggle to promote equality. Challenging inequality, discrimination and oppression is a difficulty in itself, however, an essential part of this is recognising the understanding of the workings of power. The social work profession has always been at the frontline of several of the most interesting and innovative ideas in anti-discriminatory and anti-oppressive practices because of anti-discriminatory practice being of crucial importance in social work education and practice.
Education is the birth right of every citizen of the nation and it is mandatory that everyone gets good primary education in their life. Having this privilege it is natural that poor people will expect a better approach towards the educational facilities that are provided to them. Education should not be allocated based on the race and cultural background of the people. It should be common to all and very well accessible also. The main central theme in the article is the depriving educational conditions in New York.
John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath is a book set in the Depression era that gives insights to the emotions and overwhelming harsh conditions the migrating farmers experienced. By using this plot and setting, the book gives the profound opinions regarding the role of the US government and the sense of kinship within people of the society. The Grapes of Wrath presents the idea that the role of the government is to think and act for the good of the people, and that a community of different families should all come together and become one big family when dealing with harsh situations. Under all circumstances, the government should always think, act, and most importantly provide support for the bettering of the society. People obey laws and orders set by their government because they are subjected to do so under the Social Contract in order to protect themselves.

The federal government must remain diligent in its work to educate the homeless population about their rights, specifically to education. The greatest gift we can give our children is a desire to learn. Taking away a child’s right to an education is a travesty and something our government

The point of realizing all of this is to understand the hidden scripts at work in any organization’s requests, statements, and behaviors that may seem entirely reasonable to one class of people may be insulting to someone in a different class. Payne argues that no class “rules” should be judged but that we should seek to understand them so that we have the option of making different choices that wouldn’t occur to us if we remained relegated to our own economic stratosphere. Consequently, my organization hopes that the poverty program not only helps in student, teacher and peer relations but, ultimately, has a lasting, positive societal impact as well.
Recording, Analysing and Using HR Information – (3RAI) Activity 1 Name: Nicola Cottrill Centre: Brooklands College CIPD Membership Number: 4216782X Word Count: 515 Briefing Note for the HR Director: Usage of HR Data I have reviewed the way in which our organisation collects, stores and uses HR data. I have identified two reasons why the organisation needs to collect HR data and types of data that is collects and how it is stored, and I have also outlined the benefits of the storage we use. Why We Keep Records It is important to keep accurate HR records for legislation reasons and internal purpose, mainly being operational information, but it can be used for strategic and tactical areas of reporting. To satisfy legal requirements government departments like the HMRC can ask for information of our employees; how many we employ, pay and history and hours worked going back over a number of years. The Working Time Regulations and the Minimum Wage Act 1998 both require records relating to hours worked and pay.
This is true because we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime. Jim Rohn also made it clear that what we give is what we receive when saying “The world breathes on us and each of us, in return, breathes onto the world. If a man chooses to mistreat others with his evil nature, he will in return be mistreated, but, if he chooses to touch the lives of others they will in turn touch his and he my friend, will be destined for greatness”. If a friend of yours asks you to help them rob a bank and you accept to knowingly commit a crime the only result of this action is you spending years of your life in prison. The choice to do wrong in the end will cost you both your freedom of choice and your family and loved ones emotional stress.
Many would argue that organ trade should be legalized for there is a worldwide shortage of organs available for transplantation. However, according to Ivan Illich, an Austrian philosopher, there is not a real shortage of organs, but "excess and wasted" organs. Scarcity only exists for some groups of people, those who were denied the organs, and those who could not afford them. Thus, there is not a need for organ trade. Legalization of organ trade would also end up in many misusing the right to gain maximum benefits for themselves.
