12. Essentials of Health Policy and Law (Essential Public Health)

Author: by Joel B. Teitelbaum

Public opinion polls, media coverage, legal disputes, and policy debates at all levels of government and in private industry debates ranging from the health of the national economy to the health of state populations to the health of a single individual sickened by Ebola hemorrhagic fever attest to the important place that individual health care and public health hold in the minds of the American public, policymakers, and lawmakers.

Indeed, the range of topics covered by the legal disputes and policy debates is breathtaking. For example, how should finite financial resources be allocated between health care and public health? What kind of return (in terms of quality of individual care and the overall health of the population) should we expect from the staggering amount of money we collectively spend on health?

Should individuals have a legal entitlement to health insurance? How should we attack extant health disparities based on race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status? What policies will best protect the privacy of personal health information in an increasingly electronic medical system?

Charter Schools and Their EnemiesCharter Schools and Their Enemies Thomas SowellCharter Schools and Their Enemies 1st editionThe black-white educational achievement gap – so much discussed for so many years – has already been closed by black students attending New York City’s charter schools.

This might be expected to be welcome news. But it has been very unwelcome news in traditional public schools whose students are transferring to charter schools. A backlash against charter schools has been led by teachers unions, politicians and others – not only in New York but across the country.

If those attacks succeed, the biggest losers will be minority youngsters for whom a quality education is their biggest chance for a better life.
