Please note that as you are to identify a societal problem and find two articles about it, you MUST include URL links to those articles within your answer, also as our Five Step Problem Solving Method ( step 1: what is the problem? step 2: what are the alternatives?step 3: what are the advantages and/or disadvantages of each alternative? step 4: what is the solution? step 5: how well is the solution working? ) takes us through to a solution for personal problems, and since we cannot solve all the world’s problems ourselves, you should go through Step 3 only, and you should include only things you can do, not what public officials can do. In many cases, what you can do will involve a strategy for getting others (including, perhaps, public officials) involved with the solving the societal problem you selected.
