TOP REVIEWS FROM HEALTH, HOUSING, AND EDUCATIONAL SERVICES
I learnt what is the social policy and how it works and why it needs to be in working.
It has a great outline with direct to the point facts. Making much easier to juggle a busy schedule willing a degree or certificate .
Some of the lectures had such low sound quality, I had to improvise to make it louder.
Very informative, particularly when we look at the history of our country's development in these areas.
