CHINA’S ONE CHILD POLICY; A GRAVE MISTAKE OR A SHARP MOVE?


The country with the largest and fastest growing population, China, implemented a one child policy in the 70’s with the purpose of curbing this growth. Yet China has recently back tracked and shelved this rule. Do your research and write an essay where you discuss the advantages and disadvantages of such a policy.
Suggested Plan
* Introduce the one child policy
* Discuss why it was implemented; what was expected
* Discuss what went wrong
* Discuss the current situation
Familiarize yourself with the issue:
