Star Can You Guess Which Social Programs Work?
This ten-question quiz takes fewer than 10 minutes to complete.

It provides a 150-word description of ten different social programs, and you're asked to decide whether the program had a Positive Effect, Negative Effect, or No Effect. The social programs were chosen because they've been studied multiple times, and those studies offer the most obvious results.

I scored an embarrassing 4.0/10.0.

How did you do?

3/10. If you try to answer in a manner similar to a faggot's belief system, you'll get the correct answer.

I think this is pretty hilarious (spoiler alert)

Quote:Nine randomized trials covering a 25-year period in eight different prisons demonstrated that Scared Straight programs increase the odds that participants will commit crimes in the future. The results are the same whether the program is aggressive or passive.

6/10. Basically the thrust of this survey is to attempt to prove that interventionist, government-funded shit programs ought to be extended, i.e. more gimmiedats.

And like painting the bullseye around the target, it certainly does.

Unfortunately, because it's wholly based on social science surveys, traditionally conducted by morons who don't understand statistics or falsifiable experiments, the collective worth of the survey papers is far greater as toilet paper than academic.

I think they do the exact opposite, because the social programs involving children were highly ineffective. And the basic assumption of social programs is that they're helpful for children.

I'm shocked that social programs targeting adult drug abusers were so effective. Shocked and happy, actually.

But to read that so many children/juvenile social programs don't work is an opportunity to scrap them.

This is the only one I thought might truly be real. Notice that it just reduces crime by these people, though.

The rest are bogus.

Get your passport ready!

1 out of 10.

Frankly I didn't most of these programs existed. I thought boot camps were just something they did on the Maury Povich show, not a actually gov't-funded program.

6/10

But its hard to make a call because you don't have enough evidence on how the program was run exactly to know if it will help.

I am pretty damn sure if I RAN THE BOOTCAMPS those little faggots would stay on the strait and narrow for the rest of their goddamn worthless lives.

The only social program (apart from essentials) that works is NASA. Everything is moot!

And that, like all government programs, about half the time.
