Drawing on Tussing\’s article, the update and the other readings discuss why the Social Insurance programs are more popular than public assistance programs.2. After you understand the difference between the two kinds of programs, ask someone you know (who is not otherwise informed about social welfare policy) what they think about \”Social Security\” (social insurance) and “welfare\” (i.e. public assistance) and why? How did their comments compare to Tussing\’s observations? (Don\’t tell them what you\’ve read until after you heard from them).3. Describe a real or hypothetical client who is in need of a particular benefit and describe how the different philosophical approaches between the two kinds of programs affects their ability to apply for, and retain the benefit.Session 6. THE SOCIAL SERVICE SYSTEM. Identifies the organization, structure, and operation of the social welfare system, including public, non-profit, and for-profit programs. Describes and analyzes major entitlement and benefit programs using the key concepts introduced in session 1 ( universal vs. selective, institutional vs. residual, mandatory vs. discretionary spending, deserving vs. undeserving poor, adequacy vs. equity, equality of opportunity vs. equality of result, oppression vs. social justice.)These are the readings for this assignment. You can use 4 or all if you want, but the Tussing, Dale, article should definitely be used.Readings for Session 61. Dolgoff, Ralph and Donald Feldstein. 2009.
