Educational change and the political process (2018)

Abstract

"Educational Change and the Political Process brings together key ideas on both the system of educational policy and the policy process in the United States to help students establish a broad, methodical understanding of educational policy. No other textbook offers as comprehensive a view of the U.S. educational policy procedure and political systems.Section I discusses the actors and systems that create and implement policy on both the federal and local level; Section II walks students through the policy process from idea to implementation to evaluation; and Section III delves into three major forces driving the creation of educational policies in the current era--accountability, equity, and market-driven reforms. Each chapter provides case studies, discussion questions, and classroom activities to scaffold learning, as well as a bibliography for further reading to deepen exploration of these topics."--Provided by publisher.
