EDLPS 560: Perspectives on  Policy and Policymaking in Education

Summer 2014 A-Term
Monday Wednesday 4:10-6:50
3 Credits

Brief Description: This course is designed as an introduction to the study of policy, policymaking, and the analysis of both, with a specific focus on education policy design and the pre-implementation phases of the policymaking process. We will examine a number of theoretical frameworks or conceptual models that attempt to help us better understand how policy designers; identify educational “problems”, isolate policy targets, prioritize policy goals, select among policy tools, and decide on a course of policy action. Students will have multiple opportunities to discuss and use these models as tools for exploring and explaining the seemingly tenuous connections between education policy and practice.
