Democracy Social Change
When it comes to change, many people fear it for example education as evolved and now people can obtain a degree online. I recall when online education was frowned upon, today millions are going this right because of the convenience. Now that more people are attending online school. It is important for programs to be accredited, which are criteria that must be followed for recognition. This form of policy helps potential students decide which programs work best for their career goals. In my understanding applying policy with change can help create rules and regulations to be followed for the protection of the people in the country (JANINE R. WEDEL, 2005). Online education has opened the doors to global social culture, meaning my fellow classmates come from all over the world. The difficult task with online education and policy is being able to set standards based on the world and not just the country the institutions.
Social change is happening globally, and it is time to expand democracy internationally. I feel social changed happened faster than many of us expected and we are witnessing the conflicts with privacy and protection. If we develop an international democracy for social change, we can all be on the same standards and regulations without debate (GOLDKIND, 2014). This would require compromise with elected officials, the downfall with this route is democracy in other countries are not the American way. With the difficultness of policy in social change, private organizations are stepping up to use non regulatory ways for change such as ethics and morals values. Being a good start, this will one day hope to lead to more regulatory methods.References
