...Adversary System in UnitedStates
The scheme of American jurisprudence wherein a judge or jury renders a decision in a controversy between or among parties who assert contradictory positions during a judicial examination such as a trial, hearing, or other adjudication.
U.S. courtrooms have often been compared to battlefields or playing fields. The adversary system by which legal disputes are settled in the UnitedStates promotes the idea that legal controversies are battles or contests to be fought and won using all available resources.
The contemporary Anglo-American adversary system has gradually evolved, over several hundred years. Early English jury trials were unstructured proceedings in which the judge might act as inquisitor, or even prosecutor, as well as fact finder. Criminal defendants were not allowed to have counsel, to call witnesses, to conduct cross-examination, or to offer affirmative defenses. All types of evidence were allowed, and juries, although supposedly neutral and passive, were actually highly influenced by the judge's remarks and instructions. In fact, before 1670, jurors could be fined or jailed for refusing to follow a judge's directions.
The late 1600s saw the advent of a more modern adversarial system in England and its American colonies. Juries took a more neutral stance, and appellate review, previously unavailable, became possible in some...

The UnitedStates of Immigrants
The UnitedStates of America is known as “the land of the free”. We are a nation full of immigrants who have traveled from across the globe. Being the most diverse country on Earth, America is where they want to go. But why? Why do people consistently choose America as their destination to live? America was founded on freedom which attracts people from different cuts of life. We take in individuals and give them a chance to thrive. Whether it is with work opportunities, freedom of religion, a better economy or shelter from war and discrimination, the UnitedStates of America is the place to be.
Job opportunities have continuously been one of the greatest push/pull factors in bringing people to America. Since the birth of America, up until very recently, jobs were in high demand because of the rapid growth of our nation. When people in other countries did not have work, they came to America, the land of opportunity. During the 1830’s to the 1880’s, it was dubbed “Old Immigration” when numerous immigrants originating from Northwest and Eastern Europe came to America. From the 1840’s through the 1850’s, mass quantities of Irish immigrants arrived at port cities like New York and Boston for work. Since work was scarce in their home countries, they had agreed to work very hard for long hours with little pay here...
...State and Local Government
What is Federalism?
The UnitedStates has one of the most complicated forms of government in the world. With many levels and subdivisions, this form of government is called federalism. Within the UnitedStates, federalism is marked by a continuous change in the system of connections between the national, state, and local governments. At times, the different levels of government act independently and at other times, the levels became so entangled that it becomes impossible to tell apart the responsibilities of one from the other. Federalism is just one of the three main systems of power used by the UnitedStates.
There are two ways, other than pure federalism, to organize power among national and regional governments. Pure federalism is also known as a federal system. In a federal system, the central and regional governments are divided in power and responsibilities, and the governments do not depend on each other for their power. Voters elect candidates into both the regional and central levels within a federal system allowing the UnitedStates to have a representative government, meaning that people elect representatives to legislate on their behalf.
Another system of government is the unitary system. In a unitary system, power is concentrated in the central government. The central government...

UnitedStates: Crime or Data Aficionado
Crime is and has been a constant problem in America for as long as one can remember. The problem is, there isn’t a definite definition as to why crime is much more prevalent in the UnitedStates than in other parts of the world. So I would propose that question. Although it has been studied constantly and extensively over the past centuries, there has been no definitive answer. Why is there so much crime in the US, especially in comparison to the rest of the World?
First of all, where does this definition come from? Who believes that there is more crime in the US than in the rest of the world? In response to this question, I would have to go based on experiences and things I personally know about criminology, or the study of crime. Although it may not appear so for those people who have lived here their entire lives, but the UnitedStates is seen as having a militarized government where firearms are legal in most states and drugs are a large problem. Thus, to other countries, there is more “crime” in the UnitedStates than there is in other parts of the world. But my question lies within that thought. I question whether or not that is true or not, and whether that number has been misconstrued in order to make the UnitedStates...
...At the UnitedStates, due to the combined effect of CDSC(comprehensive developmental school counseling) scholarship and ASCA (the American School Counselor Association ) model advocacy, Many state departments of education have revised their state school counseling models to reflect the ASCA National Model for school counseling programs. (Martin, Carey& DeCoster, 2009). But there is a problem that only a few states have developed statewide evaluation systems to gather information about program effectiveness and to promote effective local program evaluation. This article describes the statewide evaluation system of school counseling system of two exemplary states (Missouri and Utah) and tries to find the successful factors that could be used to help to guide other states’ implementation of program evaluation.
This article’s research questions (Martin& Carey 2012):
(a) How do exemplary states approach CDSC program evaluation?
(b) What strategies and practices do these states use to evaluate their programs?
(c) What lessons can be learned from these states about establishing program evaluation systems?
This article use qualitative survey to gain an in-depth understanding of the similarities and differences between two states’ program evaluation systems.
The study was divided into two phases:
(a) the creation...
...Improving the Education System in the UnitedStates
Education is the key to success. Having a good education allows people to be offered different opportunities throughout life. People with a high level of education tend to do better. People with a lower quality of education do not do as well as people who receive their masters and/or doctorate degrees. Education is different for all people depending on the cities they live in. People who live in suburban areas are exposed to a not necessarily better education but one of higher quality. Students who attend school in urban areas face problems such as standardized testing and funding issues. The UnitedStates as a whole has many tribulations when it comes to education that needs to be improved.
There are many policies that could be suggested for improving the education system in the UnitedStates. Policies such as ‘Race to the Top’ and ‘No Child left Behind’ can help to improve the education system; however they should be implemented with minor tweaks. These policies were brought about because of the education problems in the UnitedStates. ‘Race to the Top’ is a program where schools K-12 are in competition to innovate and reform their schools. Schools that meet all the criteria are awarded money from the federal funding. ‘No Child Left Behind’ is a program which was designed to encourage student achievement...
