Kristin Taylor POL 370-Introduction to Public Administration Dr. Randall Swain December 7 th , 2015 Module #8 Assignment To illustrate, there are so many things going out there in life based on social equity and the aspects of it as well. However, just like it stated in the text social equity is “ fairness in the delivery of public services; it is egalitarianism in action- the principle that each citizen, regardless of economic resources or personal traits, deserves and has a right to be given equal treatment by the political system” (Shafritz/Russell/Borick; Introducing Public Administration, pg.433). In addition, in my opinion it is developed really well especially through the amendments because no matter what type of government comes in those amendments are there to stay no matter what the changes are in the constitution because based on social equity in the U.S. there has not been equality provided to men and women throughout the history of it and it has never been moving in that direction as well too. Lastly, based on the Emancipation Proclamation, Thirteenth Amendment, Fourteenth Amendment, and the Fifteenth Amendment there are so many qualities out there today that will help social equity and to show how it is developed in response to social need and the government’s understanding of it.

In addition, this would help social equity and help develop it because Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation primarily as a war measure. Perhaps its most significant immediate effect was that it, for the first time, it officially placed the U.S. government against the "peculiar institution" of slavery and placing a barrier between the South and its recognition by European nations that had outlawed slavery. In addition, the South had long counted on aid from England and France. However, there were several articles within the

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
