For high school students, Roush compiles 30 articles related to the annual US National High School Policy Debate Topic for 2009-2010: social services for the poor. Articles, which were originally published between 2003 and 2009 in USA Today, Newsweek, The American Prospect, The New York Times, Amber Waves, and other publications, consider how and to what extent America's federal government should provide social programs for the poor, as well as relationships between poverty and policy; the effects of the Clinton administration's 1996 reform of welfare policy and welfare's present role; the reform and expansion of Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program; the history of food stamps (now the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program); and related aspects of poverty such as low-income housing, disability, and early childhood education.
