Politics is the group of political activities which are concerned with making political decisions in relation to the distribution of status or resources among different persons, for the benefit of those people, such as the selection of leaders, government or legislation. The major branch of political science which studies government and politics is known as public administration. This school of political studies also includes the study of women’s issues and political Parties.
Politics is usually taught in the schools alongside other subjects such as mathematics, history, and English. There are many interesting political science topics which are taught in classrooms across the world. Some of the most important political systems include Greek polity, Roman government, French republic, and British representative system. These systems provide a clear illustration of how politics developed over the time.
Over the years, the political systems developed and evolved to cater to different needs. As a result, some disability issues have also been included in the curriculum. For example, disability related to physical, mental and sensory organs has always been an important matter. In France, disability is not allowed to stand in a candidates’ elective list.
In recent years, the representation laws for disability and politics have been expanded to a certain extent. However, the difficulty with disability representation is that it is very difficult for people who have passed away to be properly compensated and to have their cases properly reflected upon in the legislature. For this reason, many people with physical and mental disabilities are still deprived of the right to vote. This makes politics a very challenging field for people with disabilities, as they need to engage actively in the political process in order to be able to avail of their franchise. This barrier to politics for people with disabilities has therefore forced them to turn to the field of non-profit organizations which help in the utilization of their rights.
Politics is about making choices. People may have different and complex personal backgrounds and there may be conflicts between their convictions and the demands of society at large. It is thus necessary for people to know how to make decisions based on their convictions and to be aware of how various policies affecting them will impact their lives. Therefore, studying political science can help them understand how politics affects them.
The development of special education programs for people with learning disabilities provides hope in overcoming these barriers. There are special programs like the Special Education Assistance Program (SEAP) which aims to help people attain quality education. In this program, students with disabilities can learn how to become successful academically by attending classes in a classroom setting. However, these programs are often costly, and most people may find it difficult to afford this form of education. Alternatively, people can avail of university or college student disability financing schemes. This provides them with the opportunity to go to school or college without having to worry about paying for the entire cost.
