An Examination of the Political Processes Involved in the Development of the Student Class Attendance Policy at Trenton State College.
Romano, Francis A.
The political processes involved in the policy system of the college are examined and are considered important because the students have become legitimately involved in the policy-making process. The student class attendance policy was studied, based on interviews and study of documents related to the development of the policy. Sixteen major figures involved in the policy development were interviewed according to an interview instrument designed through the use of Baldridge's Political Model. The model concerned five areas of policy development analysis: (1) Social Structure Features, (2) Interest Articulation Processes, (3) Legislative Phases, (4) Policy Outcomes, and (5) Policy Execution. Results of the interviews and the examination of the documents were analyzed through the use of the Baldridge Model. The findings revealed the major reasons for the development of the policy, the conflicts that occurred between the constituencies, the compromises that were made, and the legislative processes involved in the development of the policy. The results also support various recommendations for the improvement of student involvement in the policy-making process and the improvement of the total policy system of the college. (Author/LBH)
