dvice From Other NationsS.S. Period 424-Oct-96A newly independent nation is seeking advice from other nationsas it establishes its domestic policies on a variety of issues. Some of thenations and policies are Japan and there education system, Israel and womensright, and Englands health care system.
The first area in which the nation is seeking advise is in thearea of education. They are seeking advise from Japan. Japan puts much stresson its education. In Japan there are 240 days/year of school at six days perweek (Mon.-Sat.). This is part of the reason Japan has a 99% literecy rate. InJapan if a person wants to get a good job then they usually need to have acollege degree. The newly independent nation should not choose this systembecause it puts to much stress and pressure on the students. For example to getinto a good high school or college you must pass a difficult exam. Manystudents who do not get into a good school often turn to suicide, Japan issecond in the world behind the U.S. in teen suicide. I would not choose thisbecause a good system of education is not worth teens killing themselves.
The second area in which the nation is seeking advice is in the area ofwomens rights. They are seeking advice from Israel. In Israel women are givenas equal rights as men are. Women are allowed to have the samejobs, education,and also serve in the military under the same conditions of men. The nationshould choose this policy because women are as equal as men and should have allthe same oppurtunities. Plus during a war or crisis women would have all thesame military experience as men.
The third area of advise in which the nation is seeking advice is in thearea of health care. The nation is seeking advise from England. In Englandhealth care is covered by the NHS. The NHS (National Health Service)is a formof care that has been in place since 1946. Under the NHS all citizens areprovided health care on demand. All expences are covered by general taxes withtsmall fees on prescription drugs and Doctors are paid at a fixed per patientrate. The nation should not choose this policy because allthough it providesadequate health care to people and alows people of all money classes to go tothe doctors it also costs alot of money. In 1989 alone more than $42 billion wasspent providing health care.
With a little help these other nations the new nation should have abright future.
