Nonetheless, today one lives in a society in which one must fight to continue to posses those rights once again. Similar to the rest of history, when there have many examples of individual rights were not protected. The question then becomes at what price such sacrifices were made. Human rights should be exercised whenever injustice is witnessed, not only as protest when it is to one’s benefit. Acting to unite the people of the United States of America as one regardless of race, gender, religion or sexual preference despite belief over whether individual issues are important enough to defend.
Moral judgments are typically based on your upbringing, your likes, your religion (or non-religion), and numerous other aspects that make up your personality. Those listed traits and further attributions give you the basis of what you are going to feel morally to many issues such as: homosexuality, abortion, murder, stealing, etc. While many of us feel that we are always precise when making a judgment, this paper will show that no matter how hard we try; the above statement will always be true. In Rachels’ The Elements of Moral Philosophy; it states, “Ethical Subjectivism is the idea that our moral opinions are based on our feelings, and nothing more”. Ethical Subjectivism is what the topic statement is defining.
This paper reviews Hardy’s (2008) dissertation on perceptions of school counselors and school administrators with the respect to the roles of school counselors as they implement the New York Comprehensive School Counseling Model. This critique will examine the problem and purpose of the study, literature review, methodology and conclude with discussion and summary. The Problem (Hardy’s, 2008) study focused on two problems. The first concern focused on “the ambiguous role definition of actual practice for school counselors since New York State school counselors responsibilities are defined by local school district administration instead of the components of the New York State Model. In addition, a second problem is the understanding by school personnel of the school district’s conditions and their readiness towards the implementation of the New York State Mode” (p.2-3).
Tilley suggests that “special education structures have remained fixed for more than 30 years” (2008, p. 23) and raises the question of how school psychology can more to a problem solving model in this “fixed” environment. In response to his own question, he finds a difference between the safeguards that are mandated (due process, procedural safeguards, quality assessments and Individualized Educational Programs) versus how these mandates are achieved. Reschley (2008) also explores the paradigm shift of the field of school psychology. He states that two thirds of a psychologists time is currently spend on classifying students and possibly placing them in special education. However, based on survey data, these same psychologists would rather spend more of their time in “direct and indirect interventions” (Reschley, p. 5).

ABSTRACT: P. F. Strawson’s essay "Freedom and Resentment" was a landmark in the study of determinism, free-will, and morality. It contributed a much-needed correction to the problem of overintellectualization as found in twentieth-century compatibilist literature. Although most of the central claims in Strawson’s essay are important and true, it fails to fill the lacuna in the analysis, discussion and proposals of traditional compatibilism. The reasons may be summarized as follows. The web of moral demands, feelings and participant attitudes comprises a set of facts within human social life which must be investigated in order to understand the relation (or lack thereof) between determinism and morality.

Since the early 1970’s gender has increasingly played a role in development discourse, policy and planning. Within the fields of refugee and forced migration studies however, gender analysis had been sorely neglected until the mid 1980’s. This essay will consider the origins of contemporary notions of ‘gender’ within the social sciences and argue that it is relational, concerning both men and women, and that it is a primary factor in organising social lives and argue that gender is a key factor to the access of power, as is ethnicity and class, and that these too are gendered constructs. It will then relate gender analysis to the field of forced migration, arguing that since gender is the principal factor in all forms of power relations, gendered analysis is fundamental to knowledge production and emancipatory action and that data collection has been overlooked in this regard. It will consider the history and development of gender discourse within forced migration and provide a critique of the effectiveness of gender responsive strategies.
